When we think of intelligence, we often conjure up images of creatures such as dolphins or apes that have developed the ability to reason and solve problems. While these animals are certainly intelligent, they are not the only animals capable of exhibiting such behaviour.

Insects, for example, are some of the most highly-developed creatures on Earth, with brains that contain surprising levels of complexity. Many insects have been shown to be capable of learning, memory, problem solving and even forming concepts.
