I was wondering, which animal is more similar to human – swine or ape – if we’re talking about anatomy. I know, that genetically apes are the same as men in 95% or even more, but I heard that anatomicly pigs are more similar to human than apes. So, am I wrong or am I right? Thank you for any usefull answer.
Anatomically apes are more similar. Think about it: same number of digits, binocular vision, very similar body shape; the only real anatomical difference between humans and apes is our fully opposable thumb.
yes, but that is not because of genetic differences. An organ from an ape would probably present many more advantages, but it is easier to raise a pig than an ape. And easier to extract an organ from it.
