Take tool use. Some animals use tools alright, but point out one that makes one tool to make another different tool. We've been doing that in our various stages for over a million years.
A huge chunk of modern medicine has developed medications from natural sources.
No. It likely jumped to us from Congolese Chimps, initially via hunting for bush meat in the very early 20th century, then really spreading through the use of dirty needles in large scale African vaccination drives in the 40's and 50's, then via of all things a Haitian blood bank in the 1970's that exported large amounts of plasma to the US.
I'm below par today.
Genuinely made me laugh out loud.
I read a really interesting thing about Orcas recently.
Apparently they 'speak' in different dialects.
For instance a North Atlantic Orca communicates differently to a Pacific Orca.
This caused problems when Orcas from different parts of the world were integrated together in Sealife parks.
They are noted to be hostile towards each other.
We are at the tip of the iceberg in understanding the abilities of animals. We have had dogs as Pets for 3000 years but we have only begun to really research them in the last 30.
We only diverged from Fungi 650m years ago
Cats eat grass to make themselves puke up hair balls and also are found getting high on catnip.
