Cows are one animal I never really considered much- they're cute, I'd never harm one, but I suppose I always sort of subconsciously bought into the mainstream notion that they're not as clever as other animals.
Clips like this always make me wonder what they must do the other 99.9% of the time, when there are no cameras rolling or human witnesses.
Wow. Cool. And i thought that video was kind of relaxing. Sometimes I think i get somewhat horrified by some of the cruelty videos on here. It was nice to see they do lots of buttons and levers like that. Almost like they are solving puzzles
All animals are clever in their own way. It annoys me that we attempt to base an animal's intelligence on what human like things it can do (i.e. problem solving). Half the time animals do not require the need to do certain things that we attribute intelligence to. And certainly not "build planes, use such and such" as some idiots claim when trying to make out animals are inferior because they can't do something a human can do.
A bird doesn't need to know how to do maths or speak human language. It being taught to do so makes no difference to their intelligence. It is not something that would come up in nature so whether they can do it is neither here nor there.
Anyways, I'm rambling and not making much sense. Just so stupid to base animal intelligence on doing human like things. They most likely could do those things (as a species in general) before humans evolved.

Lomedin: Learned by chance that Kat Von D is vegan. Didn't have a clue who she was before.

Vegan: I'm on an antinatilist group and only found out about her on that. Had no idea who she was before as never heard of her.

cybernaut: Well, it can be a little hard for me to come here sometimes because of how negative things can get here. I realize there's much to be negative about, but it's still hard for me all the same.
