Animal Communication

We have so far identified 70 different cries that elephants use to communicate. Alex the grey parrot leaned to use, not just parrot, 150 words. Washoe the chimpanzee learned 350 words of ASL (American Sign Language). Uneducated humans use about 500 words. Educated ones make do with about 800. The range of human contemplation is not that much greater than other animals.
