← Six 'uniquely' human traits now found in animals

Rob Schneider's Avatar Jump to comment 1 by Rob Schneider

When I see my dog "sneak" a ball she is not supposed to be playing with, skulk silently off to hide behind the couch where her transgressions cannot be observed, I understand/suspect that there are many more human characteristics and "mind" traits in animals than some have been willing to observe.

She KNOWS what she is doing is wrong (or at least will have consequences) and she actively chooses to hide to avoid the consequences. Amazing.
