Crows are considered to be one of the smarter animals in the wild kingdom, with some species capable of both tool use and construction. The hooded crow of Isreal has been observed using bread as bait to catch fish while crows in Australia have learned how to eat the otherwise poisonous cane today — they flip the toads over to kill and eat them and avoid the toxic skin on their backs.

This Croatian crow sought out help from some humans in opening up a bottle of water for a quick drink.

It took the humans a bit to catch on. Smart crow!

This reminds me of the video of the cute little fox who got his head stuck in a peanut butter jar.
