These experiments have been conducted one bottle-nose dolphins and they have passed.
But rational is planing, a animal will never plan he cant.
Rational decisions includes planing, of course planing includes artificial evolution. For example birds may build nests, but one speces will always build it the same while humans will build it in alot of ways.
Many species do plan. Predator's plan their hunt's pretty well enough. Some species have long term memory, they don't easily forget.
So, because human's have more sense of creativity then bird's that mean's they're able to plan and birds aren't? was nest building alway's just an instinct for birds and building shelter's for human's was never an instinct?
Animals throughout their lives, through their experiences, start to form a structure to the instincts, it is only a conisistency agenda. Like when you say the word "treat" the dog knows, from over many times of saying it, that he is getting a snack, and may even run to the place where they are stored.
