This is a rather interesting suggestion, as tool making behavior was recently 
observed in a corvid. Also, the social interaction of many corvids is neither 
solitary nor pack, just interacting when they have a common goal. Somewhat 
like the cooperative behavior of virtual teams on the Internet. Last but not 
least, the raven is a natural for a cartoon character.
