The world’s largest land mammal is smarter than most humans and that’s because elephants have been around for at least 2 million years, according to a study published Monday in the journal Science.
Elephants are the world’s most intelligent animals, and their cognitive abilities are just one of many indicators of how sophisticated they are.
Scientists have known for decades that elephants have a long-term memory that can last for months at a time, a sense of direction and spatial awareness, and a sense that other animals have feelings.
They are also the world leaders in the study of empathy, a trait that has been linked to increased emotional intelligence and understanding.
But they also have an enormous brain and can perform complex cognitive tasks, including reading and navigating.
Researchers have long thought that humans and other animals would have evolved the ability to perform the same kinds of complex tasks, but this new study suggests that elephants are not alone in that regard.
“The finding that elephants actually have the capacity to perform these complex cognitive processes, it just shows that elephants can be so much smarter than we are,” said co-author Jonathan Salkowitz, a neuroscientist at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
In the new study, scientists from the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Army and the University and College of Veterinary Medicine in the U.
“In a series of experiments, the researchers trained an elephant to play a simple game of fetch, with a cue that indicated which way to turn, such as a pink marble on a table.
The researchers then tested how well the elephant could quickly learn to play the game.
Elephants were tested before and after they had trained to play, as well as before and afterward.
Elephant performance on the game was better than that of a group of humans, but not quite as well.
The elephants were also less skilled than the other group members, according the study.
This study has implications for how humans might approach learning to do cognitive tasks and even how we learn new skills, such the ability of humans to solve complex problems.”
For the new findings, Salkows research team recruited six elephants, who were both in their prime and in their late teens, and trained them for five months in a series to assess their cognitive skills. “
It’s the equivalent of a chess master or a great mathematician.”

Then, they took a group test and compared them to human participants who had completed similar tasks.
Elephan elephants scored higher on the test than the group of human participants, which the researchers used to determine the difference in cognitive ability between the two groups.
This indicates that elephants’ ability to learn the game of play was higher than their level of cognition, which indicates that they have a higher cognitive capacity.
“When you see that the cognitive abilities of elephants are so high, it’s probably a good thing that they’ve been around, because that’s an area where humans are not getting very far,” Salkerowits explained.
But while elephants are the only mammals that are able to play fetch, other tasks are possible.
“If you’re a child and you want to learn how to play with a ball or an arm, you can train them to do that,” he said.
But he added that even with this level of expertise, “you’re not going to be able to solve the problem.
Elephasias cognitive abilities will be a lot lower than ours.”
A second study is planned, to test whether the elephants can also do complex visual tasks, such using a joystick, a virtual reality game, or a virtual camera.
