    There's already a ton of cute animal threads. Thought it would be cool to see some videos of animals exhibiting what appears to be intelligence or complex emotion. The animal in this video isn't doing anything particularly intelligent, but it's showing interest in something that surprises me and leads me to think it's trying to process what it's seeing. Would love to see what you guys come up with.

    Option 1) Humans. Kill. Damn my flippers and being fooled into this glass cage with the promise of treats.

    Option 2) The beluga is simply sensing the sonic vibrations from the instruments, and probably has never seen a mariachi band before, and is therefore showing its interest.

    Option 3) I am trying to tell you, the Volgons have marked the Earth for demolition! (So long, and thanks for all the fish).

    One of my Betta fish died today after several years of giving me a lot of happiness. Incredibly smart and just amazing. Reacted to everything with enthusiasm, and it was definitely not just hoping for food as some may say. Even in the end he fought to move himself to the side of the tank where my finger was, and where I tried my best to comfort him.

    We know so little about what animals think, and their emotions.

    Sorry to hear about your fish. I know a lot of people will scoff at your claim, but I don't. I think animals have a type of intelligence we simply cannot understand. In some ways I think they are superior to humans.

    I'm sorry to hear your fish died and I'm not scoffing, but I don't believe Betta fish have any meaningful emotion nor intelligence...

    Crows are brilliant... Google 'crow solving a puzzle' and be amazed at their solutions to challenges that even chimps can't solve. And they arrive at the solutions without training, showing problem-solving skills and tool-making skills.

    wow! do you think the elephant was trained to do this, like how and what to paint, or was he drawing this based on his own observations? How much help was the caregiver giving the elephant, if any?

    imagine how much money someone could make if they took him to nyc and did this... people would be flocking in from everywhere, and pay like $100+ for each painting i am sure

    The damn things are waiting for food. They'll do anything to get it. It's really the "researchers" who are being trained.
