      If by poweful you mean, the ones that have developed the most and made the most use of the resources around us then yes.

      If you mean ‘are we the most abundant/successful species’ then no and if you mean are we the strongest then definately not! Smartest? Yes we are πŸ™‚

      I think while we are certainly the most advanced and I guess the highest on the food chain providing we have a gun, but not the most physically powerful, I guess an elephant or a whale has the greatest power (I think so anyway!).To be honest I think sometimes our intelligence makes us less powerful than other species because we just want more and more and are greedy for power even if it means harming our planet and other species habitat
