The Mammalian Way

I find it amazing that this monkey looks like a wrinkly old man, that a monkey looks so much like a human with Spock ears. I probably shouldn’t be surprised at the resemblance since our DNA sequences are so much alike. However, those few percent that don’t match make a huge difference in our ability to interact with the world. One thing that does unite us mammals is our need to suckle on our mothers, to nestle into that warm body for safety, comfort, nourishment, to cling to mama during the formative years of our lives.
