Meet the philosopher ducklings that indulge in abstract thought

"There once was a brainy duckling. It could remember whether shapes or colours it saw just after hatching were the same as or different to each other.

The feat surprised the researchers, who were initially sceptical about whether the ducklings could grasp such complex concepts as “same” and “different”."
