Everyone has wondered what it would be like to be their pet dog or cat—covered in fur, walking on all fours. But have you ever wondered what it would be like to have eight eyes and legs like a spider? What if you drank through a straw that was part of your mouth like a butterfly? The imagination runs wild in this book that explores the hilarious possibilities of what it would be like if people had the traits of animals all while learning distinct and disgusting facts about these animals. For instance, picture what it would be like if people . . . . . . carried their young in their mouths like jawfish do. . . . were as strong as carpenter ants, which can lift 850x their own weight. . . . could stretch over 10x their own length the way that ribbon worms can. . . . had eyes in their hands like starfish. . . . had skunk defenses and squirted some stink out of their rears when they’re attacked. What If Humans Were Animals imagines all these possibilities and more in hilariously graphic picture and gag-provoking text that entertains as well as educates. Readers will never be able to forget all these animal facts when they picture them in this zany and outrageous context.

Essay from the year 2018 in the subject Philosophy - Practical (Ethics, Aesthetics, Culture, Nature, Right, ...), grade: 2,3, University of Winchester, language: English, abstract: This essay analyzes the ethical consideration of animals. Humans have the right to hurt or bring suffer to an animal, if they are able to provide a reasonable cause. This it is left up to humans, to decide, when it is acceptable to let a non-human animal suffer. It seems to be pretty complicated to define whether there is a reasonable cause or not. The fact that humans have this right in modern society, and where this right comes from, would be considered as the base for movements like the animal right movement. This essay will take a closer look at the development of these concepts and argue if non-human animals should be ethically considered. The analysis of the human and non-human animal relationship and the question, if animals have rights, goes back to antiquity. The answer to this question involves a few factors, while the main factor is and was the position humans have in comparison to non-human animals. In history, most of the time, humans were put highly above non-human animals. This was mainly because of two reasons, which have been very constant for centuries. First, the God-likeness of humans and their ability to be reasonable. It seems to be very random to claim that reason is connected to the ability of language or is necessary in order to have a mind. Non-human animals use language to communicate, but it is in a way that is beyond the understanding of humans. It is out of question that non-human animals can suffer and feel fear. If humans are such moral beings, this alone should be enough to not harm them.
