I def believe so.
Animals I believe can be even wiser than us because they seem to be much, much more intouch with nature and the earth than we are. Plus, usually all animals are more pure than humans, they love more, learn more, care more, forgive and forget.
In my Astral travels, I've spoken to animals, they always seem to have something extremely wise and interesting to tell me and usually its something I need to know ether at that time or later in my life.
Also, looking at correspondences of different animals may help you when you're looking for knowlegde. SOme animals have different things they stand for and powers they know of. So it'd be good to look into that.
