  • Answer: First, humans are animals. We are not some separate creature. We are part of the animal kingdom.

    Second, there is no difference in DNA. DNA is DNA. You find the same four bases (ATGC) in humans, bonobos, pigeons, mice, tuna, tiger sharks, bacteria, protozoa, ... and the list goes on.

    The bases are the same, but they are arranged in different sequences. So the base sequence is different in mice and humans, but the same four bases are used. Also, the sequence is different between you and me, but again the same four bases are used.

    We are all related. We all share the same four DNA bases. Welcome to the living world, which we are part of, not separate from.
  • Answer: It is made of exactly the same components (deoxyribose - phosphate and the four bases ATCG), but the order of the base pairs differ.
  • Answer: Primates (animals in the monkey and ape family) and horses
  • Answer: raw tripe can be safely eaten by a dog but not a human
  • Answer: In theory no, and theologically, even if possible the idea would be taboo. On the other hand a family member who was a registered nurse since l943 claims she saw a photograph in a book on abnormal biology- she was shown the photograph by a doctor who evidentally was interested in Freaks more or less as a hobby. There was a photo of an animal about the size of a large dog or foal ( Baby or extremely young Equine animal)., It has a round head and human-like features. the animal appeared to weigh about 30 lbs, again say the size of a common dog. It appeared to be Black or dark in color- Black and white photo naturally. I have no other information. As this poto was in a technical type book it is not likely to be a joke or a piece of Trick photography. Evidentally, if real a product of the bizarre rural pastime of (Mourning Lukes_ that is Humans making love advances to animals , and probably an equine animal here. it is utterly repellent, no laughing matter. Alas it could happen.
  • Answer: As much as people wish to believe otherwise, not much.
    DNA is universally (in every plant animal human bacteria etc) a code of Adenine Cytosine Guanine and Thymine. These 4 (A, C, G and T) nucleotides (a form of molecule) , are read by cellular machinary to first form a backup copy RNA, which is then read in sets of 3 and translated to amino acids (much more complex molecules). eg GCG = alanine. These strings of amino acids are building blocks for protiens. These proteins are what go on to make life. (see wikipedia protiens)
    Differences occur between prokaryotes (organisms without a nucleus) and eukaryotes (organisms with nucleus) with regards to the processing of DNA (to RNA or not to RNA etc) but the code itself is still the same. Some specific species also have exceptions to the "code" of what 3 letters equal what but again these are exceptions.
    So essentially there is no genetic difference between human and animal DNA except for what it codes for, and of course the amount of DNA - genome sizes vary greatly organism to organism.

  • Answer: Actually, DNA is the same for all living organisms it has the same genetic code! The only difference between a tree and me is the order in which it is assembled. Think of it as an alphabet. The four nucleotides adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine are the four symbols that are like the letters. The order in which you place the nucleotides determines the genetic information which results in what organism it will be and how it will function. So, the answer to your question would be the order of nucleotides. (But you could always be more specific if you wanted to.)
  • Answer: probaly not, u wuld die if u had animal organs!! they culd have diesease!!

If a human is an animal can a veterinarian treat their illness?

  • A veterinarian is highly trained for treatment of diseases in many species, and probably could treat some human conditions. However, this is highly illegal, as stated by the Veterinary Licence. Likewise, it is illegal for physicians to treat animal species.
