    This is so interesting. I never realized that humans were the only creatures who actually cry.

      Hi Yasha, I thought so too! I study linguistics and the topic of language comes up, but this point of view is much more dividing because, like it mentions, different animals have advanced communication systems. (However, I'm pretty sure animals don't have ways or needs to talk about the past or future. Ha!) I once also took an emotions class, but we didn't touch on this aspect of tears in humans.
