Smarter than the average bear

Bears use tools. Dolphins exchange names (obSimpsons: Treehouse of Horror – Night of the Dolphins).

Humans had a good run but it’s over.

Seriously, no one had ever seen a bear use a tool before? I personally witnessed a bear using a rock to break a lock off a bear box 15 years ago. And I’ve seen them pop the top off a beer bottle and drink the contents. So bears have been this smart for a while. But I suppose it’s a big step in evolution from drinking and B&E to metrosexual.
