my dog can recognise himself in the mirror :)

@Smyth18: Yes, but the dog must perceive that the reflection is not another dog, but is actually a reflection of himself. Also, consider accepting 'crow' for the European magpie.

As the source article says, a major criticism of the mirror test is that a lot of species don't use vision as a major sense.

@HiddenPalace 'Crow' is now accepted for the magpie. Guess that one was too hard, since only 5% got it right. And after all, the magpie is a member of the crow family. Thanks for the suggestion.

As I understand, there's a lot of disagreement about this in recent research — both about the validity of the overall concept, and about which species really can.
