We know that some animals have an enviable intelligence and that they are capable of developing skills that the human being can not. Dogs, for example, have a sense of smell and a sense of hearing that allows them to perceive things in the environment that we sometimes do not detect, which gives them a kind of talent to predict things that are about to happen.
