I am doing research on animal intelligence. I am
having trouble finding a list of the least and most intelligent or
trainable animals. Can you help?
That is a tough question, mainly because of the extent of the question.
It might be good to consider narrowing your focus to a specific species or group of animals. For instance, you could look into the specific dog breeds with respect to their ability to be trained. Also, it's important to note that ability to be trained and intelligence aren't always one in the same.
Sorry not to be able to answer, but I think with a bit more focus you could come up with a really interesting topic to look into.
