Parrot Power
Also in the deaths column recently, A famous parrot, who may have understood nothing.

Nothing, zero, none, is a fairly abstract concept. One the bird used.

There's a video in the article if you want to see and hear what Alex was like.

Goodbye Alex

Do you think his association with humans gave him an understanding of his impending demise?

I don't know. They said in the article they played the shell game with him and he would get visibly upset when his prize wasn't there as expected, so he understood what a gyp life could be, with people experimenting on you all the time.

They were teaching him colors, numbers, and such. I doubt they'd gotten to The Meaning of Life (or even The Circle of Life) from there. But maybe.
