In our anthropocentric paradigm, we all too often underestimate the intelligence of "lesser" (?) animals.
Which reminds me of one of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes ---
Calvin : "I just sharpened my fingernails so they're like claws !"
Hobbes : "But mine are retractable."
Calvin (with defeated look on his face ) : "Sigh ! No wings, no prehensile tail, no compound eyes...sigh !"
Funny and not so funny, these arguements were the same ones when they were trying to decide of blacks should be allowed in white bathrooms.....
