Smarter than a Mouse?

Seems to me that if a Parakeet and a Mouse can figure out how to befriend each other and share, people ought to be able to figure out how to stop shooting at each each other and settle differences peacefully. Aren’t we supposed to be smarter than birds and rodents?

  1. It’s amazing how oftentimes animals are smarter than us humans.

      Thank you for your thoughts Tonya. That’s just the point— we can’t have it both ways. Either we’re smarter than other animals or we aren’t. We certainly like to think we are most of the time. Personally, I think it boils down to what intelligence metric you choose to use. Only time will tell if we are as adept about existing in Earths biosphere for an extend length of time as many species are. It will take 100 million years or so to put us in the same league as the longer lived species and genus’s that inhabit our planet.
