    And some said from the fish (?)
    Well, they did say we evolved from monkeys...
    Great Apes share the same Chromosome set. The differences between Humans and our nearest relative, the Chimpanzee, (about 3%) are mostly found on the Y chromosome; the male one.

    I found these two animals who share our diploid number of
    chromosomes. I'm not a biologist -I wonder why our chromosome
    numbers match yet we are so physiologically different.
