A study from Australia's Macquarie University, University of New South Wales, and St Andrews University in Scotland found that young Australian eastern blue-tongue lizards are just as intelligent as adults

This was discovered after scientists put the animals, who were all aged between 23 and 56 days, through a series of tasks designed to test their cognitive abilities.

Birgit Szabo said: "In all the tests, the young lizards performed every bit as well as the adults. This indicates that the young learn at adult levels from a very early age."
