These 8 Animals Are Incredibly Self-Aware, And They Know When They See Something Beautiful!
4. Rhesus Macaques
A rhesus monkey passed the mirror test in 2010, going so far as to adjust the mirror for better self-viewing. However, this occurred only after some special training, explains Live Science.
Chimpanzees were the first formal recipients of the mirror test. After responding with aggression to their images, they soon started using the mirror as humans do: to inspect their own appearances.
The bonobo, a type of great ape, also passed the mirror test. Experts consider this sociable animal one of the most intelligent primates in the world. Not only are they self-aware, but they also display other human-like qualities, such as empathy and altruism.
