As humans, who are said to have had evolved from monkeys, continues to push boundaries and outsmart generations they succeed. And as dogs continue to get smarter, some creatures don’t want to learn and evolve and continues to stay dumb like they forever were.
On the recently concluded World Wildlife Day, a The Hindu article unveiled the dumbest creature to ever walk the Earth. And humans, in some way or the other, have a hand in making it the dumbest creature.
In the article, the Turtles have been defined as the dumbest animals in the world. This tag has been conferred to them due to their inability to identify a difference between a plastic bag and a jellyfish.
Why? because they weren’t born to identify the difference.
“Such is the lack of intelligence that a sea turtle cannot even tell the difference between a plastic bag and a jellyfish. That says a lot when you consider that Jellyfish is the turtles favourite food,” the article says.
Surely, it’s we humans that have evolved and forced others (be it animals or humans) to evolve with us. And while animals like dogs, cats or even lions have understood our ways, turtles, on the other hand, have failed. Or maybe we have failed to understand them.
And now when “geniuses that put a vehicle on the red planet, a man on the faraway moon, and that plastic bag in the vast ocean,” claim to be the most intelligent, we need to question ourselves are we actually the most evolved?
Ofc yes, if evolving for us means to evolve alone by plaguing someone else’s existence.
The sarcastic article now leaves you with the question “Who’s actually is the dumbest creature on this planet?”

I couldn't take it at first. Then realized it is sarcasm— The Hindu Rationalist ?? (@HRationalist) March 3, 2020
Nailed it with sarcasm ??. But that's our reality, the ugly face of humanity. Everything going wrong with the world is our own creation.— Swarnakshi ? (@SwarnakshiM) March 3, 2020
Awesome…. brilliantly portrayed the species that masquerades as "sapiens".— Kartic Godavarthy (@karticsg) March 3, 2020
What a horrid way to describe a creature which evolved to adapt to circumstances which did not include willful pollution by humans for short term comforts.— Kiyomizu Praying for Peace (@1971Kiyomizu) March 4, 2020
Despite nature's gift of intellect & cognition, we willfully continue poisoning their own planet.
Who is truly dumb?
Isn't it ironic!, the dumbest creature on the planet is least harmful to the eco-system, whilst the most intelligent one spends every second destroying it. Truly human intelligence is very artificial.— The 9th HABIT (@9thHABIT) March 4, 2020
