Radio interview with a New Caledonian Crow researcher. It also mentions the BBC programme "inside the animal mind", which I've not seen (so can't guarantee the level of "media hype") but might be worth checking out!

An example of some of the work on african grey parrots by Irene Pepperberg. Worth thinking about the extent to which Griffin has been exposed to tests. Is he problem solving or simply remembering through trial and error?

Katherine Jones's insight:
Video made by researchers at Kyoto primate research institute showing chimpanzee numeral memory experiment. It is worth thinking about the extent to which this is procedural versus episodic memory.

Amazing field experiment that investigates how sharks select seal prey. By manipulating the "domains of danger" the authors are able to exclude potential confounding factors (e.g. weaker individuals being nearer the margins).
More recent study in which the authors argue _some_New Caledonian crows can use causal reasoning (understanding the abstract concept of a "hole"). Transfer of this understanding to a similar but different looking task is used to rule out simple associative cues.
