Clever animal: Can crow be the most Clever after monkeys?
The crows have long been considered clever animal. But they may be more intelligent than we think.
The crow’s name was Betty. And it had to reach the sky of fame. Scientists at Oxford University were stunned when he picked up an iron wire inside the cage, then twisted one end of it onto something.
The wire had now become a hooked tool, with an end shaped like a fishing hook. With the help of this tool, Betty slid a box of plastic into a box containing meat. Then he had his lunch.
In 2002, her daughter’s activities were a source of fun.
How did a crow find such a simple solution to a complex problem? His movement was very close to our mental deception. Newspapers called it a surprising sienna.
There was nothing more special about the daughter than that. Years later research revealed that New Caledonian breeders are usually experts at turning tools away.
In the jungle they do this all the time. But those who watched the daughter felt as if she had just been told.
In fact, New Caledonian crows have learned this way in the jungle, where they twist soft shoots and extract food from cracks and cracks.
This tactic hinted more on his nature than his intelligence.
New Caledonian koi extract shrubs and shrubs using tree trunks and shrubs
Christian Ritz of St. Andrews University says: ‘I do not underestimate his ability to think. At least it forces us to re-evaluate ways as a daughter. ‘
New Caledonian koi belong to a family of birds, including Mina, Nile canyon, mountain koi, etc.
In recent years the brain of such birds has been studied deeply. There is no doubt that some of these birds exhibit unusual burdens. But intelligence is a complicated topic. The first question is, what is it? And why did it develop?
Birds from the Crow family are helping us find answers to these questions.
The dwelling place of intelligence is the mind. Primates – intelligent creatures, including humans, monkeys and lizards, etc., have a specific part in the brain called the neocortex.
It is thought that it enables the pursuit of superior intelligence. This part is not found in the brains of the coroids. However, instead they are found in neurons or clusters of brain cells that have similar mental capacity.
Crow and primates both have the basic ability to solve a problem and the ability to adapt to changes in the form of new information and experiences. It is an evolutionary process whereby different species produce similar characteristics within themselves.
It is easy for humans to observe this behavior of caroids. For example, identifying people who have ever been dangerous to them or using gestures to communicate. We also rely on these capabilities.
Some birds, such as the New Caledonian ones they are researching, can do extraordinary things.
In a recent article he has published with his fellow researchers, he writes that New Caledonian is choosing a particular plant to bend its curved tools.
Experiments have shown that they found the desired stem even when it was covered with other plants.
This suggests that they were looking for something they knew could be useful for making these tools. It’s just like you would never use any other tool other than a hammer to press the nail.
New Caledonian crows use their tools to remove insects from tree trunks in the woods.
You may be thinking that some animals are more intelligent than others and that humans are sitting on top of the tree of intelligence. Certainly, man relies most on intelligence to survive. But that doesn’t mean we’re the best at every mental exercise.
There is curiosity in the nature of the crows
Harvard University’s Dakota McCoy says that Bin Manns ‘short-term memory is better than humans’.
New Caledonian is not the only living organism other than humans. The list of competent animals also includes parrots, chimpanzees, crocodiles and crabs.
Cognition can help a creature do many things to survive in its own environment, but many animals do it without it. Wherever they use mental abilities to access food lying in difficult places, Zarifa gets help with his long neck.
Clever’ animals often have the ability to work beyond what they need.
In the TV series Inside the Animal Mind, a New Caledonian called 007 tackles a puzzle that has eight different stages.
The appearance of the daughter in front of the 007 feat above seems to be typical. One bird confronted a situation he might never have encountered in the forest.
True, 007 learned the various steps involved in solving this mattress, but using them sequentially was a challenge. There are indications that the birds may be planning for some time to come.
Possibly 007 and the like can do a lot more, just that we haven’t tried them yet.
Like Ritz, McCoy also experimented on New Caledonian wells.
In a report, McCoy and his colleagues described how they tried to see how birds’ mood was affected by the use of tools.
New Caledonian wells were first trained to have more meat than cans on one side of the table. Then a box was placed in the middle of the table, which no one knew about how much meat was in it.
The wells that had recently used the tools moved toward the compartment in the center of the table much faster than those who had not used the tools.
The Quays also find solutions to problems they do not have to face in the jungle.
McCoy said it seemed that the use of the tools made the Crows more optimistic. He said that this would not prove that he would be overjoyed, but it does show a positive relationship between the use of tools and the expectations created.
According to McCoy, the ability to think is an interesting process. It also makes it possible for tasks that are not just necessary to survive.
The people whom McCoy worked on were naturally jealous of curiosity. They fly by picking up scientific instruments. Young birds are fond of playing.
He said that humans are not much different.
We have big brains that we use to solve the ‘crossword puzzle’, it has nothing to do with evolution.
New Caledonian wells have the same mood and memory as ours and other intelligent creatures. Strategies and expectations too. They are capable of dealing with confusion.
All of this was made possible by the process of evolution.
But intelligence does not just meet the need of life. Animal intelligence produces many fascinating phenomena. Guerrillas that recognize the language of human beings, dispose of rugs and tell-tale parrots.
Nature writes notes and the animal brain creates music. As the saying goes, the only limitation is their own mind.
