A new British study has found that Goats can learn how to solve difficult tasks very fast
and can retain that knowledge for up to 10 months.
The discovery was made at Queen Mary University of London by some researchers who were
able to train a group of goats to get food from a box by pulling a lever with their
mouths, then lifting it to release the food. Ten months later, the animals were tested
again and were still able to do it.
The goats were able to learn the task within 12 trials and took less than two minutes to
remember the challenge 10 months after.
“Our results challenge the common misconception that goats aren’t intelligent animals —
they have the ability to learn complex tasks and remember them for a long time,” study
co-author Alan McElligott said in a press release. “This could explain why they are so
successful in colonising new environments.”
Contrary to what you already believe, goats are not as dumb as you think. So before you
call someone else a “goat”, you might just be saying they are more intelligent than you.
Lol. Let’s hear your opinion about this new discovery below
