The Difference Between Humans and Animals
What is the difference?
Humans vs. animals
Humans have long considered themselves truly unique. But it turns out that the better word from “unique” is “most advanced”. Every year scientists prove that some purely human traits are found in animals.
Tool use and construction
Ravens use stones to crack eggs, sometimes immobilizing an egg with a bigger stone and hitting it with a smaller one.
Sense of humor
Apes in the wild have been recorded to taunt tiger cubs by pulling their ears, tails and patting them – and escaping later, only to return and do it again.
Although chimpanzees can’t really communicate verbally, they can do it through sign language.
Elephants feed and wait for crippled herd member, showing empathy.
Wild dolphins, which were recovering from an illness in Adelaide dolphinarium learned to tail-walk only from dolphins living in captivity, without human trainers.
All great apes, dolphins, elephants and magpies recognize their reflection in the mirror, if they see anything unusual they try to rub it/remove it.
Chimpanzees have similar basic arithmetic mental, non-verbal skills (adding up) as humans.
Long term memory
Clark’s nutcrackers remember for at least half year where they put seeds – and they use 5 thousand caches in a 15-mile area.
