Animal Intelligence

Hey everyone. After our discussion today I wanted to make a post about Orca whales. First off here is the link to the Orcas teaching their young how to hunt:

As you can see in the video, the Orcas are very coordinated and use very interesting hunting habits. The fact that the whales are teaching their young, and do not kill the seal, is very interesting. They obviously realize that practice is important for successful hunts. Does this denote intelligence?

Another really interesting documentary that deals with Orca intelligence is called: Blackfish
For anyone that is interested in non-human intelligence I definitely recommend it.
