Homo sapiens, they are the ones.
They are wise, all the daughters and sons;
And they think and they plan,
And so dominates — man.
(And that’s why chimpanzees don’t have guns).
Getting a bit tired of these crazy animal stories — you know what I mean:
“Lion rescues baby antelope from crocodile infested river! “
“Killer whale takes injured seal to hospital!”
“Eagle catches falling baby in mid air and delivers it to mother’s arms!”
“Unconscious man saved from speeding train as millions of ants drag him from railway tracks!”
No need to over-inflate animal IQs or credit them with human characteristics. Keep it up and pretty soon we won’t be allowed to eat them — I guess that’s the idea.
