1. The word is 'sapience'
2. It can easily be argued that we're not the only sapient species on the planet. Dolphins have been seen using distinct calls for one another. Different pods of whales (of the same species) in different places of the world have different dialects and cultures, despite being the same species. Crows understand currency. Non-human apes are probably in the early stages of sapiency, as they've been seen using tools, and with sign language they can express actual thoughts, and talk about past experiences to humans. Elephants have death rituals for one another. Some parrots actually understand some of the words they mimic, and use them in legitimate sentences.
I don't think all the above-mentioned animals are sapient, except for maybe dolphins.
If elephants were already sapient, we'd know, as they have an efficient way of grasping and manipulating thing, and they live on land. Dolphins live in the water, so they can't utilize fire, which would make it impossible for them to have any kind of a civilization, but they may be just as smart, regardless.

sen·tience (snshns, -sh-ns)
1. The quality or state of being sentient; consciousness.
2. Feeling as distinguished from perception or thought.

Just ignore the pronunciation....

I've been told that it would be squids. I don't know if anyone here has ever seen the future is wild but it's basically like walking with dinosaurs except in the future, so scientists do some sciencey things to come up with what animals might be like in the distant future and pretty much everything in that show on sea and land is some kind of squid.

They'll do it again.

Dolphins are an extremely delicate specie
they can only stand waters at certain temperatures, acidity and cleanliness. Conditions that would change dramatically in any cataclysm.
whatever wiped us out, would wipe them out too.
and I hope you're joking about the telekinesis part...

sen·tient [sen-shuhnt]
1. having the power of perception by the senses; conscious.
2. characterized by sensation and consciousness.

You know, I'm pretty sure most animals already have senses.

******* wouldn't develop **** , they've been in Africa for a long ass time and all they have developed is a stick and mud huts.

I personally think squirrels would take over, those little bastards are nuts.

User avatar #9 - strangesir (04/20/2013) [-]
I would think cats, any/all felines.
Or foxes or wolves.
