Animals That Are Better Than Me

Animals That Are Better Than Me

Here's something different for a bit of fun. This is a good laugh:

So this video got me thinking. I wonder what other animals might show me up ... for example, did you know that pigeons are better at visuo-spacial problems than humans (you know, like those problems where you have to rotate a 3D object in your mind)?

Or what about the fact that gorillas can lead their families over hundreds of kilometers back to the best feeding spots at just the right time of year for the food to be there. I know people who get lost on the way to the local shops!

And did you know that pigs perform better on memory games than many primates. I don't know how many times I've forgotten the pin for my bank card, and it's only 4 digits. Actually the studies that proved this were pretty cool. They used joystick controlled computer games to conduct the research. Apparently the pigs really dug playing computer games. Who knows pigs might not just have a better memory than me, they might beat me at guitar hero ... everyone else can!

Leave me a comment let me know what other animals you think are better than me. But be nice, I'm a gentle soul :-)
