Scientists at the University of Adelaide said that several religion authorities and eminent scholars have been propagating the idea that humans are exceptional by virtue and that they are the smartest in the animal kingdom, but they fail to understand the intelligence of animals.

Dr Arthur Saniotis, Visiting Research Fellow with the University's School of Medical Sciences has said that thought animal rights began rising to prominence in the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution may have forestalled any gains made in our awareness of other animals.
