Homo sapiens have always been seen as the most intelligent species, but what makes them so intelligent? Some believe that intelligence is the ability to communicate through a language. However, it is much more complex. Intelligence is more so the ability to learn, reason and understand, as well as understanding truths, relationships, facts, and meanings. Through much research, scientists have discovered that there are other species with great knowledge. Species such as dolphins, primates, elephants
It is awful even just to picture how chimpanzees are being anesthetized for more than hundred times and being put in a small, barren cage for the sake of biomedical science. Chimpanzees are our closest living relatives both biologically and socially (Stanford et. al., 2017). Humans and chimpanzees shares lots of similarities genetically and that is one of the reasons why many scientists use chimpanzees for medical science research. This is also the most important reason on why people who are informed
was created and how it was created. People also ask, “How did human originate?” This is an argument that has been fought for many years. Although there are several ideas, society mainly argues over two of them. The first idea is that man was created by God during his creation of the universe. This is the idea of creationism. It is supported by many religious people. Creationism is supported by religion. The second way that humans could have originated is through a process called evolution.
Mary Martinez Professor D. Jacobson Anthropology Lab 17 April 2018 Chimpanzees It was a bright and hot day in July. My family gathered at Santa Ana Zoo, in Orange County, and it so happens they have a collection of monkeys at their zoo. We walked into the zoo and were drawn to these beautiful animals and the information they had about the monkeys housed there as well as other types of primates. Reflecting now, it is interesting to think we share a collective history with primates. Although many
Pan troglodytes (Chimpanzee) I chose this species because I wanted to do research on Chimpanzees. I thought it would be a great topic because it’s interesting and I love chimpanzees and would like to own one. Taxonomic Hierarchy Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Mammalia Order: Primates Family: Hominidae Genus: Pan Species: Pan troglodytes Common name: Chimpanzee Morphology Average life age 45-60 Average size 3.5 to 5.5 ft Weight average Their skin is hair which is usually black or brown
Jane Goodall’s books, Through a Window, In the Shadow of Man, and The Chimpanzees of Gombe, recount her many years as an observer of chimpanzees and other species of monkeys. In Through a Window, she gives her account of thirty years with chimpanzees in the village of Gombe, off of Lake Tanganyika. During those thirty years with her son and husband, she observed and researched the chimpanzees with the help of other researchers. This book is a collection of the observations and data
“Can a machine made by intelligent minds have an intelligent mind of its own?” This was the question that was being asked in the 1950s. A man by the name of Alan Turing decided to venture out and analyze this question for himself by coming up with a thought experiment in which he called the imitation game. This is a game that involves three players. One of each gender and one who plays the judge to determine the gender of players A and B. A’s job is to try and trick C-the judge-into guessing the
Sophia reviled three different views from Dr. Adora, Mrs. Royal, and Dr. Busch regarding the topic of nonhuman personhood. Dr. Zoe Adora, an animal rights lawyer and non-practicing veterinarian states how animals in particular, chimpanzees should have the same rights as a human and should be granted personhood. On the other note, Mrs. Royal, an attorney that represents for a not-for-profit consortium of pharmaceutical companies, claims that giving animals personhood is not necessary and would cause
animals, such as wolf, cat and many other animals. Currently, we put our interest on chimpanzees. They have very close characteristics with human. Among different primates, they are very intelligent, and they have the largest brain. They can even use sophisticated tools to help themselves in daily life. Base on the high qualities of chimpanzees, some researchers and scientists try to raise chimpanzees as a human and let them have the ability to speak. There is such a project called, Project Nim.
Humans and chimpanzees; when people hear these two words they often think about two different species, but these living creatures have a lot more in common than the average person would anticipate. Evolution is a topic that has been contemplated and studied by scientists, such as Charles Darwin, who stated “Man is developed from an ovule, about 125th of an inch in diameter, which differs in no respect from the ovules of other animals,”1 for many years. Through scientific research it is proven that
