Animals can do abstract thinking

  • Humans think they are unique since they possess the ability to make connections and understand abstract concepts. However, research has revealed that animals have the capability of doing the same. 

    Scientific American reports that an experiment with orangutans and gorillas showed that animals are fairly abstract and another study proved that dogs have the ability to identify other dogs by sight even if they're not of the same breed. 

    Researchers have also proven that several other animals including bears possess similar skills.
