    Perhaps the number one test of an animals intelligence is something called self-recognition. This is preformed by putting the animal in front of mirror. Doing so allows scientists to see if animals can recognize themselves as a spererate entity. Of all the animals in the world, only three animals have such self-awareness. Humans, Chimpanzees and dolphins, which scientists have just discovered may be smarted than chimpanzees. Not only do they have self-awareness, but the use mirrors to routinely inspect their bodies for scaring or parasites in order to keep themselves clean.
