They already boast the raspy tones of seasoned smokers.
But actually getting to grips with a cigarette is another thing. No matter how much they huffed and puffed, these crows couldn't quite work out what to do.
Britons Judie and Tony Ellis, on holiday in the Maldives, spotted one crow fly past with the packet before landing on a roof for a crafty cigarette break.'It seemed to be dishing them out to the others,' Judie said.
'They even had them in their beaks the right way.'.
As Judie, 53, rushed to get her camera to record the scene two more crows arrived for a fag break and picked up the cigarettes in their beaks.
'It was taking the cigarettes out of the packet and putting them on the roof of the water villa. Then the other crows were picking them up.

Heh heh. Hard to say whether that picture will offend the enviro-nazis or the health-nazis more.
Crows smoking? Tomorrow I’m applying for a 2 million dollar grant to study second hand smoke in pigeons.
That’s all the proof I need; humans definitely evolved from crows.
Now, if they can figure out how to work a Zippo, they’ll be in business!
Bloomberg better hope this doesn’t catch on with pigeons, though.
I wonder how they picked up this particular habit. Mimicking people ?
I guess you can get a nicotine high by eating it too.
Puff.. puff... pass.
Don’t get caught by the L.A. Libs, but if you do just tell ‘em it’s weed.
Crows are ridiculously smart.
A man I know talked one into a big cage once. Just went out and talked to the thing. I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t witnessed it.
Out of a soft pack no less!
How about PETA?
Crow abuse, or
Contributing to the delinquency of wildlife?
