How intelligent are whales

Report as

We are barely beginning to explore and learn about Whales and other animals; would be impossible to truly give definitive answer. For example it has only recently been found that certain whales, Orcas, Bottlenose and Risso's Dolphins have Spindle Cells("von Economo neurons") within their brains; these cells appear to have a direct corrolation in the development of intelligent behaviour. Humans, Great Apes and Elephants are the only other species so far known to have spindle cells. So would say we just don't really know.

I asked one at the aquarium what his name was. He answered: "Awabumu aaaaooowww". So very intelligent, however.... one splashed water on me... how rude.

They are smarter than dogs, but not as smart as the great apes.
