Being a human is not always easy. We have a lot of stresses to deal with in our work, relationships, and life that can make it seem like any other existence would be easier. Not so fast! There are many things we don’t have to worry about such as having thousands of siblings, or having our head ripped off (literally), or having to clean our ears with our tongue and eat food with our feet! Read below to see why being human isn’t so bad after all; and if you had to trade places with an animal, why you just might pick being a flea!
Life After Death
One thing humans can be certain of is death. And although there are some pretty awful ways to die, we know it happens under certain conditions. Not so with a cockroach . That’s right. These guys are resilient in the worst way. A cockroach can live for weeks without a head before starving to death. And their head will continue to move for several hours after decapitation!
You Want Me To Share With Who?
Siblings can drive each other nuts, especially when it comes to sharing, but usually we wouldn’t trade them for anything. Although you may not feel that way if you were a rat. Rats multiply so quickly that in one year, two rats could have 15,000 descendants. Try finding some ice cream or your hair brush living with those guys!
