We humans always think about ourselves as the ‘special specie’. We think that we are the one of it’s kind specie in terms of intelligence. We also think that we are so far apart from any other specie in terms of journey of evolution that we might as well have come from some other planet or solar system.
We think that genetically we are so different from other species because the difference in humans and other animal kingdom is indeed very striking.
However, when we try to know how different we really are from other animals, we stumble upon some very interesting facts. It can be quite shocking to know that we, the great humans are not that radically different after all. And that there are species that share as many as 90% genes with us.
These species of course include monkeys, but there are some other animals that we never suspected of being so close to humans…
