Pigs are often thought to be unintelligent and dirty. As animals commonly exploited for the meat industry, it is easier to think of these animals as “lowly” creatures when you are eating pork. Green Monsters, however, know that these animals are actually incredibly intelligent and super clean. In fact, pigs might be even more intelligent than our beloved canine companions.

These two German-speaking animals are here to compete for the title of “smartest species.” Their mom doles out the commands, and both eagerly rise to the challenge. Turning left and right, it is hard to determine which awesome animal, pig or dog, does it best. They both seem like winners in our book and seeing as they both get rewarded with something delicious, their mom must think they’re awesome too!

This pig is certainly dispelling any ridiculous stereotypes, proving that pigs are smart, wonderful animals worthy of being treated with respect … and spoiled with lots of delicious treats!
