Koko the gorilla had an IQ of between 75 and 95

"The gorilla, who was said to have an IQ of between 75 and 95, could understand 2,000 words of spoken English. The average IQ for humans on many tests is 100, and most people score somewhere between 85 and 115."

Who here has a lower IQ than Koko had?

Viki: Viki, a chimpanzee, came closest to being a real talking ape. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, Keith and Catherine Hayes of the Yerkes Laboratories of Primate Biology, then located in Orange Park, Florida, adopted Viki and raised her at home as if she were a human baby. With the Hayeses moving her lips for her, Viki learned to utter “mama.” Eventually, with much difficulty, she managed to say three other words—papa, cup and up—on her own. Viki’s tenure as a talking ape didn’t last long; she died at the age of seven of viral meningitis.

There's been good arguments that simians are going through the stone age right now.

Who knows where they will be in a few hundred thousand years.

This isn't going to be nice.

Washoe: In the 1960s, psychologists Allen and Beatrix Gardner of the University of Nevada, Reno recognized that chimpanzees naturally gesture a lot and thought chimps would be well suited for sign language. In 1966, they started working with Washoe. Later, psychologists Roger and Deborah Fouts, now retired from Central Washington University, continued the work. By the end of Washoe’s life in 2007, she knew about 250 signs and could put different signs together to make simple combinations like “Gimmie Sweet” and “You Me Go Out Hurry.” Washoe’s adopted son Loulis also learned to sign—by watching his mother. He was the first ape to learn signs from other apes, not humans. For more on Washoe’s life, read Roger Fouts’ Next of Kin.

Kanzi: Kanzi, a bonobo, doesn’t use sign language; he uses different combinations of lexigrams, or symbols, to communicate. In the early 1980s, psychologist Sue Savage-Rumbaugh, then of Georgia State University, was trying to teach Kanzi’s mom, Matata, to use the lexigrams; instead, Kanzi was the one who mastered the symbols. Kanzi understands spoken English and knows close to 400 symbols. When he “speaks,” his lexigram usage follows rules of grammar and syntax, according to researchers at the Great Ape Trust in Iowa, where Kanzi now resides. Kanzi is also an accomplished stone-tool maker.

Dolphins: Smarter Than Chimps

Chimps long held the highest position at the top of animal intelligence, but there have been a few studies knocking that notion down. Chimps are generally perceived to be as smart as 3-year-old humans, but their descent from the top began with a 2007 study that ranked orangutans as smartest of the animals. Dolphins are beginning to get their due from researchers. A 2010 study placed dolphins as the second-most intelligent animal, second only to humans. Dolphins can recognize themselves in a mirror and inspect various parts of their bodies, and they can solve difficult problems while living in the wild and round up schools of fish with almost military-like precision. They’re so intelligent, in fact, that one researcher, Thomas White, an ethics professor at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, says they deserve the same moral standing as humans. “The scientific research… suggests that dolphins are ‘non-human persons’ who qualify for moral standing as individuals,” he said.

What about the octopus?

We all know that humans are the most intelligent and intelligent animals in the world. Clearly, I am not comparing human brains with that of animal but there are lot many tasks that these animals can do with more perfection as compared with the humans. We have also written about a few nocturnal animals that can only be seen in the night. The simple reason is that their minds are uniquely adapted for these activities. So, here are the 10 most intelligent animals in the world,

Intelligent Animals

  1. Chimpanzee
  2. Elephant
  3. Pigs
  4. Dolphin
  5. Whale
  6. Parrots
  7. Dog
  8. Octopus
  9. Squirrels
  10. Crow

So....does that make him a SJW?

That is absurd. Utter bullshit. 

 

Those animals are not capable of stringing together complete sentences, just random words that sort of convey the idea of what they want at the time. 

 

A 70 IQ is the IQ of an average 10 year old child. 

 

A 10 year old child is capable of extremely complex speech compared to what these animals were able to display. They can be taught fairly advanced mathematics and abstract concepts. 

 

The gorillas IQ was probably like 30 or 40. Despite being brilliant by animal standards, they would be the human equivelant of a complete retard that can only utter incomplete sentences like "me... banana... feed... banana" and only barely able to groom themselves or use tools beyond silverware or shovels. 
 

I'm just a big dumb bear. I probably have an IQ of -150

LOL

Donkey Hotee has an IQ of 35 so we can laugh at him laughing at you!

 

LOL

I love your schtick.

what a fuckin retard

StevetheWeasel - Inn.

Lol!

This guy....is jealous...

Inn.

Ever see the time Mr Fred Rogers showed up, unexpectedly, to visit Koko? The gorillas favorite show was Mr Rogers.

Epic video!
