The smartest animal after humans is the chimpanzee. They are able to “make and use tools, hunt collectively, and are capable of advanced problem-solving.” They also have the capability to communicate with others.
Primates are considered the smartest after humans. Our genomes are approximately 98% similar and chimps have proved to score higher than most humans on various memory tests. They are also capable of empathy, altruism and self-awareness. Some other very intelligent animals include dolphins and elephants.
Chimpanzees are considered one of the most intelligent species because of a number of things such as: sophisticated hunting strategies, influence and rank, manipulative, and can learn to use symbols and understand aspects of human language. Chimps can communicate in a manner similar to human non verbal communication, using vocalizations, hand gestures, and facial expressions. They also have a great memory, able to learn and recognize the numbers 1-9 and their values. They also exhibit altruistic behavior to members of their own group, but are indifferent to the welfare of other chimpanzees that aren’t part of their group.
The smartest animal after a human is more likely a dolphin. Dolphins have very large brains, compared to their body size, and they have extremely astute emotional capacity. Great apes come after dolphins, then domesticated dogs and cats, and elephants.
