“Doubt a crow’s intelligence? You won’t after seeing this sneak peek for a new “Inside the Animal Mind” BBC special.
The clip, just over three minutes in length, shows a crow — dubbed “007″ — easily solve a complex, eight-step problem to earn a snack. Posted to the BBC’s YouTube channel just last week, the clip has gone viral, sitting at just under 700,000 views at the time of publication.
Individuals commenting on YouTube appear stunned that the animal is so effortlessly able to solve “one of the most complex tests of the animal mind ever.”
“That gave me goosebumps,” one user wrote.
“I am astonished,” wrote another.
“Unbelievable,” one more individual echoed.” < http://goo.gl/cKd5do
