      Many animals have more strength than humans. Elephants, lions, gorillas, whales… We are not overcome by them because we work together and because we have a higher level of intelligence and because we are fairly dextrous (we can make complex things with our hands which we can then use). I feel sorry for animals like dolphins and orca’s (killer whales), and they work closely together. However, they completely lack much dexterity. If they had hands maybe there would be vast sea civilizations as well as land civilizations…
