Humans are the most unique animals on the planet. Because of our ability to effectively communicate, opposable thumbs, and other traits; Humans have the upper hand over any other species on earth. However, some animals have some of the same traits as humans, making them truly unique among their own.
According to today’s infographic, there are human traits found in many other species as well. For example, like humans, elephants show empathy towards other elephants that are not well. Also like humans, ravens are capable of developing tools to immobilize and crack eggs to eat.
However, no other species can compare to a human’s ability to run long distances. Our two legs allow us to run long distances without excreting large amounts of energy. Humans are truly amazing unique animals, and our abilities to continue expand our span of thought show that we are capable of many more great things. I can’t imagine where the human race will be 30 years from now, but I can assure you that it will be an amazing life as we experience it. [via]
