They had to learn that we are the source of food. So if capable of learning that, what else might they be capable of learning?
They also learn who they should fear and who they can dominate in a fish tank as well.
They also seem to know where others territory is, and what is and is not food.
See what I am getting at? Its not as simple as saying something is so unless you have a Ph.D in Marine Biology as well as in Neurochemistry. I dont, and so far no one here has shown they do either. Id like things kept as their opinion rather than fact unless they can prove so. Any more than that and it becomes insulting to say that one person's views are wrong since YOU feel they are.
