Any animal lover knows that non-human species are truly remarkable. Thanks to extensive field studies, we know that both primates and dolphins are undeniably intelligent beings. Even lesser appreciated species like squids, spiders, crows, sharks and rats have smarts, that if more widely known, would stun anyone.

There are a growing number of books out there about animal intelligence too, giving us an in-depth look at their actions, emotions and clever minds. And now, thanks to video sites like YouTube and Vimeo, we can actually witness intelligent animals like never before.

The five videos below give us an inside look into the intelligent world of animals, showing us that even the most unlikely species are extraordinary.

Check them out to get just a taste of the amazing skills and intelligence that non-human species possess. And be sure to spread around these videos to show others how remarkable animals truly are.

The animals are amazing as always.....the people on the other hand......its about time that everyone learns Telepathy - the language that all animals master perfectly!

These black birds are all over where we live and funny. There is a mac nut tree across the street and the birds go in the yard , get the nuts, put them in the street so the cars crush them and then they eat them. Funny to watch.

No, we share with them. Many species were here long before us, and many are extinct because of us. We need to stop putting us at the top.
