We all know that not only man is a rational being in this world. On earth there is a mass of animals that are not lagging behind people in mental development and ingenuity, and in some cases even surpass us. Consider the ten most intelligent animals in the world:

A wolf with a mane that adorns its neck and shoulders and resembles not so much the mane of a lion as much as a horse is a real decoration of the animal world.
