The World's Brainiest Beasts

Rhesus Monkey

The Rhesus monkey displays a great deal of behavioral traits similar to humans and partakes in activities that few species do outside of humans. These activities range from the positive (grooming one another, kissing, primitive game playing) to the disturbing (coordinating well planned group attacks and even suicide!). It's clear these creatures are extremely smart and resourceful.
