NOVA’s “How Smart Are Animals?” – Watch Video Online

February 6, 2011

On Wednesday, NOVA (in something they’re calling the “smartest night on television”) is airing a program about animal intelligence, which includes a segment about Alex, the famous African Grey, and his trainer Irene Pepperberg.

Here’s NOVA’s profile of Dr. Pepperberg and a show teaser.

And here’s my review of Dr. Pepperberg’s memoir, Alex & Me, which you should totally read if you are interested in parrots and/or animal intelligence.

 

Updated! You can watch “How Smart Are Animals” online here. The segment about Alex starts at the 38-minute mark.
