We Are Animals ((HOT))



There is a lot of debate surrounding the topic of whether humans are animals or not. On one side, there are those who believe that humans are unique and distinct from all other creatures on earth. On the other side, there are those who argue that humans are just another animal species.

So, which side is correct? Are humans animals, or are they a unique species? The truth is, more facts are inclined toward humans being animals. And according to various research and studies, scientists have come to the conclusion that humans are undoubtedly animals.


There are many different types of animals, ranging from tiny ones like insects to massive ones like elephants. Also, some animals may seem similar to humans than others, in terms of appearance or even intelligence.


The planet is full of other organisms besides animals. But what differentiates these organisms? Well, one main difference is that animals are able to move around on their own. This ability to move and interact with the environment allows them to gather food, find mates, and evade danger.


These senses help animals navigate their world and survive in it. All animals also need energy in order to live. They get this energy by eating other organisms or plants. And while some animals may eat meat or plants exclusively, others are omnivorous and can eat both.


Firstly, humans share a lot of characteristics with other animal species. These characteristics tie them to the human-animal kingdom. Like all animals, humans have the following features and characteristics;


The work of these cells is directed and regulated by our DNA, which is the same as in other animals. These cells will produce and store energy, make proteins, transport other molecules in the body, and replicate DNA. All these are functions that all animal cells perform.


Humans have all the same sensory organs that other animals do. These include eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and skin. All animals can easily interact with the environment and survive in it using these senses. For instance, some animals use their strong eyesight to spot predators from afar. Others will use their hearing or smell senses to pinpoint the location of prey or food.


For example, predators move to get their prey while the prey runs for their lives. Whether predator or prey, movement is quite important for any animal to get to its food. Without movement, many animals would certainly starve to death.


Different animals reproduce in different ways, but the end result is always the same- a new organism is created. Take the case of a human. After the male fertilizes the ovum on the female, the female carries the embryo for 9 months and gives birth to a new creature (baby).


We have seen different animals mimic human sounds or words (like parrots). However, they cannot put together these symbols to form a complete sentence the way humans can. This is because human language is more complex than animal sounds. It has grammar, syntax, and semantics.


Many humans feel love and empathy towards animals, but do the animals we care about so deeply feel the same about us? How about each other? Scientific research backs the idea of emotions in animals. In fact, researchers have observed empathy in them, as well as grief, fear and other complex emotions often associated primarily with humans.


One of the most complex and integral emotions is empathy, the ability to understand and share the feelings of those around us. Humans display empathy toward other humans and animals alike. Do animals do the same? Research points to yes.


The idea of empathy in animals introduces a whole new way of looking at our non-human neighbors, suggesting that our feelings toward them might be reciprocated. It is also possible that they truly care about members of their own species in a way that we can relate to. This complex emotional trait has been observed in other primates, as well as dogs, mice and elephants.


Observing empathy in animals is becoming more frequent due to our ability to safely observe animals in their own habitats. Here are a few examples of animals displaying empathy in what we might describe as human-like ways.


Empathy in animals spans species and continents. Animals display empathy toward humans and other animals in a multitude of ways, including comforting, grieving and even rescuing each other from harm at their own expense.


With the support of the United States Department of Defense, Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), Weapons Threat Reduction Program of Global Affairs Canada, the UK Ministry of Defence and the European Union, WOAH is hosting the first global conference of its kind to bring multiple sectors together to discuss emergencies that involve or impact animals.


Most environmental pollution on Earth comes from humans and their inventions. Take, for example, the automobile or that miraculous human-made material, plastic. Today, automobile emissions are a major source of air pollution contributing to climate change, and plastics fill our ocean, creating a significant health hazard to marine animals.


The wide variety of non-domesticated species that we find in the parks, lakes, fields, roads, gardens and structures of the city, in our neighbouring forests, and on the untamed fringe lands of the city. Even the little birds in our balconies, the squirrels in our trees, the kites in our markets, and the snakes in our backyards are wild animals living amidst us.


In general, oil spills can affect animals and plants in two ways: from the oil itself and from the response or cleanup operations. Understanding both types of impacts can help spill responders minimize overall impacts to ecological communities and help them to recover much more quickly.


Since most oils float, the creatures most affected by oil are animals like sea otters and seabirds that are found on the sea surface or on shorelines if the oil comes ashore. During most oil spills, seabirds are harmed and killed in greater numbers than other kinds of creatures. Sea otters can easily be harmed by oil, since their ability to stay warm depends on their fur remaining clean. If oil remains on a beach for a while, other creatures, such as snails, clams, and terrestrial animals may suffer. To learn more details about this topic, check out the Oiled Wildlife Care Network from the University of California at Davis.


Most states have regulations about the specific procedures to follow. Untrained people should not try to capture any oiled bird or animal. At most U.S. spills, a bird and/or mammal rehabilitation center is set up to care for oiled animals. You can read an overview of this topic at EPA's Rescuing Wildlife page and find more information at the Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research website and the Oiled Wildlife Care Network website.


The type of oil spilled matters because different types of oil behave differently in the environment, and animals and birds are affected differently by different types of oil. However, it's not so easy to say which kind is worst. First, we should distinguish between "light" and "heavy" oils. Fuel oils, such as gasoline and diesel fuel, are very "light" oils. Light oils are very volatile (they evaporate relatively quickly), so they usually don't remain for long in the aquatic or marine environment (typically no longer than a few days). If they spread out on the water, as they do when they are accidentally spilled, they will evaporate relatively quickly.


However, while they are present, light oils present two significant hazards. First, some can ignite or explode. Second, many light oils, such as gasoline and diesel, are also considered to be toxic. They can kill animals or plants that they touch, and they also are dangerous to humans who breathe their fumes or get them on their skin.


Also, if heavy oils get onto the feathers of birds, the birds may die of hypothermia (they lose the ability to keep themselves warm). We observe this same effect if sea otters become oiled. After days or weeks, some heavy oils will harden, becoming very similar to an asphalt road surface. In this hardened state, heavy oils will probably not harm animals or plants that come in contact with them.


In between light and heavy oils are many different kinds of medium oils, which will last for some amount of time in the environment and will have different degrees of toxicity. Ultimately, the effects of any oil depend on where it is spilled, where it goes, and what animals and plants, or people, it affects.


But we are also responsible for the animals we raise. Humans alone may seem insignificant, but our hunger for raising livestock means we have played a major role in shifting the balance of animal life: livestock account for 4% of animal biomass.4


Your risk assessment for any activity in the workplace should also consider the risk of anyone coming into contact with animals, particularly those susceptible to COVID-19. This includes visitors coming to an event.


With an environment devoid of oxygen and high in methane, for much of its history Earth would not have been a welcoming place for animals. The earliest life forms we know of were microscopic organisms (microbes) that left signals of their presence in rocks about 3.7 billion years old. The signals consisted of a type of carbon molecule that is produced by living things.


These clusters of specialized, cooperating cells eventually became the first animals, which DNA evidence suggests evolved around 800 million years ago. Sponges were among the earliest animals. While chemical compounds from sponges are preserved in rocks as old as 700 million years, molecular evidence points to sponges developing even earlier.


The simple body plan of a sponge consists of layers of cells around water-filled cavities, supported by hard skeletal parts. The evolution of ever more complex and diverse body plans would eventually lead to distinct groups of animals.


Burrows found in the fossil record, dating to the end of the Ediacaran, reveal that worm-like animals had begun to excavate the ocean bottom. These early environmental engineers disturbed and maybe aerated the sediment, disrupting conditions for other Ediacaran animals. As environmental conditions deteriorated for some animals, they improved for others, potentially catalyzing a change-over in species. 041b061a72
