Super Smart Animals is a two-part documentary about intelligent animals all over the world. Liz Bonnin embarks on a journey to meet these amazing creatures up close and personal with the help of their human teachers and companions. Ayumu, a chimpanzee living at the Primate Research Institute at Kyoto University, taught by Professor Matsuzawa, is able to remember the position of numbers on a computer monitor more accurately and quickly than most human minds. Ronnie, a dolphin living at a diving resort in Honduras, can choreograph his own dance routine.
The documentary features skateboarding dogs, self-aware elephants and joke-telling parrots from all corners of the planet. The stars of Super Smart Animals demonstrate that humans still have a lot to learn about animal intelligence.
