Never become complacent in thinking you know everything there is to know about our planet. Inevitably, something will happen to make you realize you don’t know as much as you thought you did. Besides, that’s one of the great things about our world: learning new and interesting things about it.
As humans, we are the most advanced species on the planet, and we believe that all other animals, while possessing survival intelligence, can’t match our wit and reasoning capabilities. These traits certainly set us apart from other animals, but scientists are learning that animals might have more adaptations than we originally believed. One of these might even be empathy among wildlife.
