Are there any animals self-aware enough to question their ability to think?

The traditional test for self-awareness in animals is their ability to recognize themselves in a mirror. Few animals pass the test - primates, like gorillas, chimps, orangutans and rhesus monkeys; plus, orca whales, bottlenose dolphins, elephants, crows and ants. Human babies develop this ability between the ages of 14 and 18 months.
