Once could easily underestimate the mental capacity of a rat. While they can be revolting sewer dwellers that Hollywood has made them out to be, they are also quite smart. They have very good long term memories and are excellent when it comes to adapting to changing situations.


11. Owls

Even during the time of the ancient Greeks, owls were already seen as intelligent animals. While this may appear to be true due to pre conceived notions about their “wisdom” this is the “burst your bubble” list item. That’s right, they are actually not that smart compared to other birds. Technically they shouldn’t even be on this list but how else would we shatter everything you thought you knew?

8. Elephants

Compared to other animals, elephants have larger brains. Of course just because your brain is big, which doesn’t necessarily mean much. What matters is the proportion of body mass to brain mass but even with that said elephants are really, really smart by non human standards. These animals use their brains to create and process complex social interactions and seem to even model things such as empathy.


7. Octopus

Most breeds of dogs like Labrador Retrievers, Border Collies and Poodles are very curious about their environment and can even notice a change in the smallest detail. Is what appears to be their high emotional intelligence however, that has probably led them to be man’s best friend.


5. Whales

Generally speaking, gregarious animals who are able to form subtle bonds with their mates are smarter than solitary ones.
