We use the term “animal” to refer to any animal species except humans and often to contrast ourselves with them, ie “stop behaving like an animal”, or “what were you born in a barn?”. We think of animals with contempt but the fact is despite all our advancements as a species we are still animals. Don’t believe me?
What are the traits of animals?
The tendency to growl and bare our teeth when we’re mad?
Do we ever exhibit aggressive, territorial behavior?
Can anyone think of anything animals do that we don’t do? Or any physical trait that we have that some animals don’t?
We’re animals, admit it.
