Crows are tool-users. The tools that they use aren’t as complex as the ones we use; on the other hand, they seldom put out an eye or cut off a toe with their tools.
Crows, by proportion, have brains the size of those of chimpanzees. This means that if a crow were the size of a chimpanzee, its brain would be the size of a chimpanzee’s brain. If the crow was the size of a small planet, his brain would be even larger. Scientists agree that, a crow the size of a medium yellow star would probably suffocate in the vacuum of space.
Adult crows have black eyes. Juvenile crows have pale blue eyes that are just dreamy and you could gaze into them forever if they didn’t have the smell of dead skunk on their breaths.
Fledgling crows can eat hundreds of grasshoppers a day. But, if the grasshoppers were the size of chimpanzees, there’d probably be trouble…
The nesting territory of a rural crow is ten times the size of that of an urban crow; but, the city crow usually gets access to local theater and better schools.

A crow can live nearly sixty years in captivity… at least three times longer than its lifespan in the wild. If a domesticated crow were laid end-to-end, it would be the size of three football fields.
In Japan, crows have been seen dropping nuts on the highway so they could get at the nut-meats after cars drove over them. In the United States, bears have been seen dropping crows on the highway to make them easier to fold.
