Dogs Have Larger Brains

Dogs Have Larger Brains

Research carried out at Oxford University back in 2010 established that dogs have larger brains than cats. Their brains are more developed too which means they are smarter. The study explained that dogs are more social by nature and therefore evolved to have larger brains so they could survive. At the other end of the scale, cats are characteristically more aloof and solitary creatures by nature, as such they had less need to develop a social aspect in their lives in order to survive. Researchers explained that being “social” equals having to develop “smart” behaviours, this in turn means certain animals have more developed brains, hence dogs are smarter than cats. Other animals with more “smart brain power” include dolphins, horses, monkeys and even camels because they are all social by nature
