Insects/apes. Either or can take over the world.


madinebrb

But what type of insects?


kinslei

Probably ants.


themapzor

Octopuses.


thingstooverthink

they already are pretty intelligent. the reason they couldn't take over the world is their short life span


themapzor

This sounds fair, in the actual state of things. But early men had a way shorter lifespan too compared to now. Their life expectancy was 20-30 years, and with evolution and progress we're now at nearly 3 times that. So unless octopuses' lifespan is hard-coded in their DNA, maybe in a million years they could live long enough to drink a beer (or 8) in the US.


thingstooverthink

they die after giving birth, so no culture could ever happen


themapzor

Wtf? Do they? RIP my theory then. I'd like to change my answer to mantis shrimps then. Those look badass.


arianleellewellyn

Cats most likely


DemogorgonWhite

vook485

The most lethal species to humans!


madinebrb

Ii'm guessing Apes, they have bodies almost like us and some of them are much stronger then us


thingstooverthink

which apes? humans are apes, too


GatoMcwitch

Not really correct. We and the great apes have a common ancestor species millions and millions of years ago that eventually diverged into the ape groups and the hominid groups.


thingstooverthink

hominoids are still apes


sirwesam

Ants


orzchor

Ants.

"intelligent" as humans? is the question who is say we are anything .we are intelligent based on a model made by humans how stupid is that, a group of ants could be talking about the same things Ants are more intelligent and everything else is not.
