The correct answer to this question is a chimpanzee. Out of all the animals in the world, chimpanzees are the closest animals to humans. They share display a number of sings that lead to their intelligence. Another sign they show is their ability to communicate. They can use their hands and their voice to deliver a message.

Chimpanzees can also pass the mirror test, which is a test to track their self-awareness. The reason why they are the smartest animal is their genes. Another reason why chimpanzees are the smartest animals in the world is their environmental factors, such as where they live.

Orangutan All great apes are known to have great intellectual capacity. Orangutans stand because they are specially gifted in the brains department. Orangutans are considered the smartest animals in the world. In fact, they are known as the smartest creatures after humans. Although Orangutans aren’t born with the answers, they are exceptional learners. Orangutan mothers teach their young ones basic required skills like nest building and so on. Orangutans learn by watching people. They learn how to carry out a task such as adopting language (the only non-human primate capable of doing this), sawing wood, and applying insect repellent. Orangutans can also develop problem-solving skills. Orangutans are also known to have a very strong culture and a powerful means of communication.

There are different animals on earth that are considered to be very smart, but one of the smartest animals that you can find right now is the dolphin. It is considered to be so smart that this animal may also have the tendency to be conniving. This is similar to how human beings may act.

They may show that they are very pleasant when, in fact, they are already thinking of ways on how they can get ahead of other people. Dolphins are said to be capable of understanding human language if someone would be patient enough to teach them. There are also other animals that are considered to be very smart such as the orangutan or the chimpanzee.

Chimpanzees are closely related to human beings, so it makes sense that they can manage their environment, utilize devices, and work together as a group to achieve a goal. Chimps make and use tools such as stones and other materials to open nuts and leaves to soak up drinking water.

They live and develop in social communities, and they can adjust to their surroundings quickly. They are even intelligent enough to use sign language. They share more than ninety-eight percent of our genetic blueprint. Humans and chimps are also thought to share a common ancestor who lived four to eight million years ago.
