In a BBC special, Dr. Alex Taylor proved to the world that if any animal will rise up against humanity and take over the world, it’s going to be the crow.
In the experiment, Taylor set up a complex puzzle in which the crow had to complete 8 stations in a specific order to gain access to a piece of food. The wild crow in the experiment, dubbed “007” because of its craftiness, had seen the objects in the experimental setup before, but had never seen them arranged together before. Needless to say, it only took the crow a moment to understand the puzzle, which it proceeded to solve handily.
Given their well-documented devious intellects, craftiness and long-term memories, I wouldn’t be surprised if crows were planning to take over the world. I, for one, welcome our blackbird overlords.
