Otters Show Their Babies When They Are In Danger To Make The Enemy Feel Mercy

The University of California did some recent studies which declared that humans experience the same emotions as animals do when they see each other. Not only do they relate to other animals as being "cute" or "dangerous", but there are also many interesting facts about animals that resemble human behavior that we are not aware of. We've captured some of these moments for you, so have a look and be amazed!
