About this book

We have all heard talk of the intelligence of dolphins, elephants, great apes, or even, in different ways, ants and bees. Written by one of the world's authorities in this field, this riveting book covers the themes of tool use, language, communication, imitation and social learning, numerical abilities, social cognition, emotion, self-recognition and awareness, drawing together the most recent and remarkable global research relating to almost every "smart" species. Fully illustrated, and including step-by-step illustrations to show experiments and observations both in the field and in captivity, The Smartest Animals on the Planet delivers cutting-edge scientific research about a topic fascinating to anyone interested in the natural world.
