I suspect most of us would not have a problem with the idea that humans
are behaviorally much more complex than other organisms. The problem
arises when you try to find biological correlates to behavioral
complexity. First off, we can't really quantify behavioral complexity,
and second, the one obvious potential correlate (relative brain size)
isn't well-understood.
