I don't think physical suffering depends at all on intelligence. Possibly, the more intelligent an animal (or human) is, the more they might find complicated abstract concepts to suffer over: example, I doubt if a crayfish will suffer over the uncertainties of the afterlife, but a human being might.

Think so and just watch the crerature and its ex<x>pression. I know many pets especially dogs feel pain and know what is what. They do know but cannot express since they do not talk.

I think that intelligence minimizes suffering. We are on a fairly high level, so we internalize, rationalize, etc. This-at least mentally-minimizes the experience of pain. I think that if you were on a more basic level and without all these nifty coping mechanisms you would feel pain on a level indescribable to human beings.
