Great apes, and primates in general are very similar to humans, biologically (genetically) as well as in their way of life.
Their social organization and emotional behavior, the fact that they possess self-consciousness and understand the notion of time (past, present ans future), exactly as we do, and far from what dogs do, made scientists think that they deserved rights equal to men.
