Nature has designed each species unique in itself. But human is the only creature who can challenge nature, can destroy it and also can make it inhabitable.
But at the moment this species is destroying nature in the name of development. Destroying not only nature but also humanity. doh

Sometimes a thought comes to my mind that if there were no humans on this earth, would all the species live happily?

I doubt lions and antelopes would ever live peaceably together.

Nature makes survival the strongest instinct, and survival means getting food and raising young, humans have adapted and used whatever is available to ensure they survive.

The lion hunts only when it is hungry and can kill only a few species. But man does more damage.

What makes us unique?

Animals kill other species in order to survive

Humans kill for the fun of it...and also their own species

Sensitivity. No other species minds about things like we do. A cat doesn't spend its days wondering how it all went wrong, it just is what it is.

Apart from being the only species that (as far as we know) concerns itself with the meaning of life, we are the only species that sheds tears when sad or upset.crying

Unique? Lets see . . .

We use small pieces of paper to determine worth

We destroy our own environment

We pump countless deadly toxins and chemicals in and on our bodies

We kill each other at a alarming rate

We throw away enough food everyday to feed all of the starving people in the world because imperfect food don't get a high enough price.

We believe in a god that teaches love and tolerance yet live the complete opposite.

Only human creat imaginary God and religion. Other species do not think imaginary things, they just follow the law of nature.

Human is unique because of its bad deeds rather than its good deeds. The standard of our goodness is so low that a very good person seems like the Messenger of God.

It is Buddhist view that all beings that have mind and fear death described as sentient beings enjoy enhanced ability to reason.
Humans can apply logic and reason and engage in more meaningful thought process, best example listen to meaningful Dharma teachings.
All being that have mind and fear death (Sentient) in the main are focused on and driven by food & sex, all animal creature spend almost the whole time pursuing food and sex, sadly many humans to.
Even though most humans fritter away there short very precious opportunity, after having obtained human rebirth, on worldly desires that are acutely suffering in disguise.
So the main uniqueness of our temporary human rebirth that we are endowed with, is an enhanced ability to reason, an enhanced ability to apply logic and reason to our thought process. comfort

Only human cooks his food. All other species eat their food raw in natural form. And I think they are all healthier than us. Only those animals, who come in contact with humans, get more sick.

Any species that becomes prolific will do damage.. it's inevitable..

But yes, the damage we're doing is far beyond what any animal can or could do...and will take thousands of years for the planet to fix itself after we're gone...
