(Animals Like Us/2006) How similar are animals to humans? At first glance, we don?t have much in common with reptiles, birds or even mammals. Religion, culture and society have always forced us to view ourselves as completely separate from the animal kingdom. But in fact, recent research has shown us that we share a good deal of the same behaviour. It turns out animals sometimes get high, they fight wars, they learn about adult life through playing games, they develop cultural practices which are transmitted from one generation to the next. We are still unable to truly understand the minds of animals but every day we learn more about their emotion and desires.
