    Intelligent compared to what?
    Does failing that test make them any less intelligent? (perhaps compared to a human, but how about compared to the rest of the animal kingdom?)
    How often does finding food-on-a-string-in-a-box come up in their evolutionary history?

    In some cases, could "learning" be more intelligent than "insight"? (e.g., if insight=instinct)
