Description
Do animals think? Are they creative? Can they remember past events? Do they learn and plan ahead? Are they aware of what they're doing--or are they just programmed by the built-in patterns of behavior called instinct? In What Does the Crow Know'award-winning science author Margery Facklam offers some unexpected answers to these and other questions about animal intelligence. She looks at how lions plan a hunt, how crows and ravens solve practical problems, and how guide dogs practice "intelligent disobedience." She also introduces young readers to Darrell, a chimp who is learning fractions; Alex, a parrot who uses the English language to demonstrate original, logical thinking; Ruby, an elephant who creates abstract art with brushes and paints; and many more remarkable creatures.
