Clever Animals

Animals are cleverer than we give them credit for.

They can…

7Small business owner--his wife lays the eggsOperate their own café: “How would you like your eggs, sir?”

5Fire-breathing dogKeep the fire going while we’re away.

4Cat in CageOvercome ridiculous odds.

6Dobby bbqDo impressions of famous movie characters.

8Motorcyle mantisCreate new means of transportation (the all new 2018 MotoMantis!)

2Bird formations1Imitate other animals. (Do they do this on porpoise?)

3Bird formations2Or imitate themselves:  “Hey, let’s do a flamingo!”  “Again?”

Presentation1And best of all…   they can teach us how to love.

The ability to love and be loved by animals has always felt rather like a miracle to me. But whether it is or not, it is definitely one of life’s great joys.

  3. Mitch in my book The Business Zoo I use animals to illustrate lessons about
    business and life. Crows, one of the smartest of birds, have been trained to use vending machines and been able to build tools to get to food. I have watched Crows unzip a bike bag to get to a sandwich and then zip it backup. And these are Crows not Wolves!

    Have been a fan of elephants for soooo long. Took the time to learn about their habits. I would like to be that girl in the photo. The mantis and “Dobbie” are pretty cool too.

  11. Hi Mitch Now I am impressed. They must be far more intelligent than humans. They would not do the atrocities that humans do! Thank you so much for liking my poem ‘Premonition!’ Great to hear from you. Peace and Best Wishes. The Foureyed Poet.
