  • I did not know that. The apes and dolphins don't surprise me, but the magpie does.

  • Well, Apes & Dolphins are supposed to be the most intelligent after us so, that makes sense.

  • That's fascinating. I wonder how somebody measured the fact that those animals recognized themselves, versus just seeing their reflections. It makes sense about apes and dolphins.

  • With the chimps,they'd smear something on their nose,and show them their reflection. They recognized that the smear was on their nose,and not on that chimp's in the mirror
