      I hope not, one animal like us is enough! I would not be surprised if some of the current animals we have match our intelligence, whales, Dolphins and elephants have complex family structures and certainly whales can communicate with each other. Maybe in a few million years they will leave the seas and take over from us and make this world a better place to live in!

      At the rate we are going now, the question is whether there still be a planet in a few million years for animals to live in! I have to agree with Jo there in saying “I hope not”!
