Internet videos of animals adorably playing with a ball or craftily opening a latch are normally the domain of cats and dogs - but animal rights groups have been keen to show that cows too have a fun side.
In this compilation of clips, released on Facebook by Animals Australia, cows are shown opening locks with their tongues, releasing latches for fellow animals, and playing with balls in the dirt.
Daniel Weary, and animal researcher in Canada, has conducted numerous studies on the cognitive and emotional abilities of cattle.
His studies have shown the animals are capable of problem solving, can experience depression and anxiety when separated from parents, and experience elation at successfully performing a task.
"I hope we learn more about how interesting and smart these animals are," he told The Huffington Post. "If anything, it reflects poorly on us that we're surprised that these animals are smart."
