(other)Animals aren't smart.

Eric567

The fact of the matter is, all of what people perceive as intelligence is instinct and survival. "My dog knows how to walk back how to walk back home! It's so smart!" No, the reason it does that, the reason it acts "cute" or "smart" is because it wants to eat. A life where simple head turns, or wagging of tails gets you a meal is one the brain prefers over hunting for it, and possibly starving.
