Clever Raven Caches Food

Studies have shown that ravens seem to anticipate theft by rivals, and will cache their food to save some for later. Ravens will observe other ravens’ behaviors and will raid their caches if they have the chance. “At the same time, ravens with thievery on their minds try to look like they’re not watching too closely, which would make the cache-building ravens suspicious.” Their complex social interactions are just one of the signs of their high level of intelligence.
