Super Smart Animals
Could a chimp beat you in a maths test? Prepare to witness some of the most amazing examples of animal intelligence ever captured on camera as this series asks: what makes some animals smarter than others, and could they even outsmart us? The first episode explores groundbreaking research into the practical intelligence animals need to manipulate the physical world, while the second episode looks at exciting new studies of social intelligence: how animals lie, cheat, think, co-operate, use language and predict the behaviour of others. By showing the building blocks that sculpt intelligence in animals, the series challenges our own perceptions of what it means to be intelligent. But who truly deserves the title of 'Animal Einstein '?
