Dingo using a tool to get at treats above his head
This is a very cool video of a dingo using a tool to get to treats left high above his reach. For many years, it was thought that only humans used tools, but there have been documented instances of other animals using them as well, including crows. So that is no longer held to be a uniquely human ability. I love this video, and also the growing recognition that animals other than humans have abilities such as this.
