Animals show their anxiety, humor, kindness, strength, and courage because they are unable to be vulnerable like humans often are. I choose to examine my own brood of animals to explore how animals show human characteristics. As I have explored this I have realized they show much more than just that of happiness. Animals sense human emotion and react to it. Showing humanity through the actions of animals mirrors the human emotions people are afraid to share. These animals reflect the emotions naturally unlike people that pose to show certain emotions.
