What animal is the most intelligent?

“A university professor recently made several experiments with different animals to find out which
was the most intelligent. He found out that the monkey was more intelligent than other animals.

In one experiment the professor put a monkey in a room where there were several small boxes. Some
boxes were inside other boxes. One small box had some food inside of it. The professor wanted to watch
the monkey and to find out how long it would take the monkey to find the food. The professor left the Observe:
room. He waited a few minutes outside the door. Then he kneeled down and put his eye to the keyhole.
What did he see? To his surprise he found himself looking directly into the eye of the monkey. Baseball players need some balls, some gloves and some bats for playing.

The monkey was on the other side of the door, looking at the professor through the keyhole”
