Elephants as humans wouldn't be there to needlessly murder them just for a tusk for souvenirs.

Well done!

Hmmmm,now the answer...Dominant means higher in the pecking order in this context,...so

I suppose it would have to be the carnivores,in which case I would plump for - lions.

Dolphins because apparently they are very intelligent.
Didnt man evolve from the sea at some point, so I think it is plausible that dolphins would have deleloped differently and come onto the land or some other amphibians.

it'd have to be an insect of some kind. if you class bacteria as an animal, they allready out number us humans. they already have the most impact on all other life including us.

A very good question. Actually it might be a lot of different animals. It's even possible for two intelligent species to evolve, afcourse if they learn to coexist with one another. I agree with Xena about the dolphins, it's quite possible. I like the lion idea, but Ants!? Termites!? People, get serious, please! I personally would go with the primates, the chimpanzee or even better the gorilla. The latest experiments show that gorillas are the most intelligent of all primates. I read an article where a young girl gorilla learned how to type on a keyboard. Keyboard consisted of images. Each image representing a different desire. Typing few keys and you get a small sentence on the screen. She actually expressed her feelings and opinions when asked about certain things. About the people that run tests on her, about the child that had been taken from her when she was younger and all that displayed on the monitor. The people were blown away of the whole thing. I couldn't believe it myself until I saw a video footage.
