Video Title:
Kandula, National Zoo, insightful problem solving 2
Description:
Insightful Problem Solving in an Asian Elephant. Kandula, an 8-year old Asian elephant at the Smithsonian's National Zoo, demonstrates insightful problem solving by positioning a large cube under a treat that is too high for him to reach. By standing on the cube he can reach the food. He was not trained to do this and came up with this solution on his own. From the scientific paper "Insightful Problem Solving in an Asian Elephant," published Aug. 18, 2011 in the journal PLoS ONE.
