Elephantsare near the top of the brainiest creatures list, along with chimpanzees and dolphins. Now, scientists have added a new talent to elephants' mental repertoire: The ability to solve a problem using insight…that aha! moment when your internal light bulb switches on and you figure out the solution to a puzzle. Previously, only a limited number of species, including certain primates, crows, and parrots were known to have this ability.
When I saw what this elephant can do with a phone I couldn't stop smiling. I'm having almost as much fun watching this ad as Peter did making it!
