Communication of ideas is seen in the social insects (ants and bees) ; understanding of words and dreaming both appear in birds (parrots having been reported to talk in their sleep); and the distinctiveness of mammals starts at the understanding of mechanisms (cows being particularly adept at unlocking gates).
