THIS IS BANANAS: 7 Tech-Savvy Animals Show Off Their Skills

A huge number of us humans use technology daily, but not many others in the animal kingdom can say the same. That's what makes videos of animals using our gadgets so hilarious, heart-warming and, at times, mind-blowing.

Take Peter the elephant's video, for example, which shows the big guy flipping through pictures, playing an instrument, and even drawing an elephant friend on Samsung's Galaxy Note. It was posted on YouTube user Technivator's channel on March 26 and has since gone viral, garnering nearly 1.5 million views.

Of course, there are a handful of apps made specifically for animals -- even games you can play against your four-legged pals -- but it's more entertaining watching pets use people apps. Some of these critters are pretty tech-savvy, too. Flip through the slideshow (below) to see dogs, cats, birds and even a bearded dragon using our much-beloved gadgets just like we do!
