The student blogging challenge’s week 5 post tasks theme was science the first task was to write a post about something you were curious about.
I decided to research about animals that are the closest relatives to us. This is what I found…
About thirteen years ago researchers discovered we share ninety eight to ninety nine percent of our DNA with chimpanzees.
Bonobos share ninety nine point six of their DNA with chips which means on the genome sequence as chimps are. Bonobos are known to be the most emotial type of ape, apparently they regulate emotions the same way we do.
Us humans are actually closer relatives to gorillas than chimps are. We share ninety eight percent of DNA
While researching I found a video about what capabilities these animals have and how we are similar to them about the difference between us and chimpanzees but also the similarities we share with them, the video was a ted talk with Jane Goodall an English primatologist and anthropologist.
Know that you know more about our closest animal relatives lets play a game.
Two truths and one lie.
1. Chimpanzees are..
2. We share DNA with..
- Mammals only
- Almost every animal
Comment your answers to the questions.👍
I had a great time reaserching about humans and the DNA we share with animals, Thanks for reading my blog , Kaia
