Two crazy examples of mice being super intelligent

(CBS News) A lot of smart scientists use mice for the advancement of science. But did you realize that there are some very smart mice out there, too? Don't believe me? Fair enough. Because I've got two videos to prove my hypothesis starting with the one above. Go ahead and check it out.

The fascinating and bizarre clip entitled "Trickmousing" was posted by YouTube user MouseAgility who has some intelligent mice perform a series of complicated tricks. And because one example isn't enough to reinforce my theory, I've got another video below from the same poster of a mouse named Cindy using "her pocket money" to buy treats. Confused? Just watch and you'll see.
