If you’re a casual observer, you may have never noticed just how smart animals are. After all, animals spend most of their day doing casual things like eating, sleeping, and playing. While it’s true that animals don’t exactly “wear their intellect on their sleeves,” when they’re faced with a problem, their smarts shine through.  Take this cool cow for example!

William the steer, who lives at Farm Sanctuary, was stuck behind a gate. It’d be a simple enough problem for a person (thanks to the opposable thumbs and all), but the answer isn’t as obvious for a cow. But that bovine brain got to thinking and William came up with a genius solution … using his tongue!

Since this secret talent was discovered, the sanctuary’s gate has been William-proofed. However, we have a feeling that it won’t be long until this smart cow comes up with another creative solution. To learn more about cows and their many talents, click here.

Who needs opposable thumbs when you have an opposable tongue. One smart cow.

A smart and beautiful cow. People like to think animals are dumb (or just not think about them) so they can eat them. Not me.

No hay diferencia entre un perro y una vaca. Igual que un hombre de 2 metros de altura no siente menos que uno de 1.5, por el hecho de ser mas grande. Todos sentimos por igual el dolor!!!
