Depending on your views of evolution, this might be the most controversial infographic on the Internet at this time. This is because it links all animals together, proving that dogs are related to cats, that giraffes have close ties to amoeba, and that all humans are related to each other.
This means that your best friend could be your brother or sister, as well as your neighbor. This isn’t a reason to cancel your date this weekend, but it does provide a different view of the animal kingdom. From the perspectives of species, yes — we are all related.

This may not be what the infographic is highlighting.
Instead, a great takeaway from this is that we should respect all animals because somehow, we are all connected.
