They possess mental superiority among all other living creatures and thus are superior. But anyhow, humans share a lot with animals, features that you did not know but actually are very similar.
So let us have a look at some of the most striking similarities between humans and animals.
1. The religious similarities.
Some animals like humans are also found out to follow certain religious practices. The most prevalent among those is that of chimps. They were studied to place rocks under certain structures which made no practical sense but a certain religious sense.
2. House building skills.
Octopus has a similar level of house building skills to that of a human. They are very skillful and similar to humans in this respect.
Their houses have all the necessary arrangements plus the needed protection.
3. We have ears similar to that of Katydid.
Katydid is an insect which has ears similar to that of a human. Humans have very complex ear structure and no other animals have such complexities in their bodies.
But in a recent research it was found that Katydid had the same functioning ears and they can listen to a greater range as compared to humans.
4. Just like Humans, Cows also have regional accents.
This is another one of those striking similarities. Cows are studied to have different accents in respect to different geographical locations.
Their isolation in different regions has made them develop different sounds of ‘MOO’.
5. Like Humans some Animals are also homos.ᴇ xual.
While most of the humans and animals are bis.ᴇ xual, there are certain humans who are homos.ᴇ xual. In the Animal world as well, sheep are mostly Gay. Another striking similarity.
6. We talk things while sleeping just like dolphins.
Dolphins, like humans are found to have the trait of speaking while sleeping at night. Various studies and experiments were conducted by French researchers and the results were sparking.
Dolphins do talk in the night’s sleep.
7. The communication skills.
Gibbons are believed to have similar communication skills as those of humans.
Researchers have even discovered usage of many different words in their languages.

It is quite surprising but animals have the same social skills as those of humans and in some cases even better. Dogs especially have genes that are very similar to humans and they pick and choose their social groups according to a specific preference.
9. Dolphins, just like Humans get occasionally high.
We humans are not alone in this one, taking inᴛᴏxɪcated stuff to relieve some pressure and tension. Dolphins pass Puffer Fish between their bodies for around 30 minutes.
The Puffer fish releases a chemical for its defense which helps Dolphins in getting high.
10. We have facial expression similar to that of a mouse.
