    Which animal is next to man in intelligent and likeness?

    Is there any other animal which can take charge assuming human no more live on earth?

    Well I would say all animals are just intelligent as each other (including humans). Although, my answer to whether another animal would take charge is just simply that no other animal would take charge. The only animal that I have noticed having any need to control everything is humans, so if there were none than there would be no other animal in control.

    It depends on who you're talking about.

    Monkeys are physically and mentally closest to humans, but pigs and dolphins, weirdly, are also extremely smart.

    Our genes are 99% identical to Chimps.
    There is more genetic variation among individual chimps than Humans between races.

    If any animal, it is some sort of primate. As we can tell from certain genetic diseases like down's syndrome, intellegence is controlled by very few genes. If a chimp has a gene mutation and evolved in a similar manner as humans, then they may be the next dominant species

    Monkeys, they're very smart and the closest to human. Remember the monkey and banana experiment smile

    Dolphins, pigs and monkeys/apes are intelligent, but the monkey/ape, because of its anatomical build, would best be able to "take charge."

    What does take charge mean?

    Like completely dominate all other species with no respect or regard for the environment?

    No other species hunts when it does not need to feed or do many of the horrible things that humans do.

    But if humans disappeared off the planet due to disease, war or whatever. The next dominant species would probably be bed bugs...

    They are all over the place! Itchy itchy call the exterminator!!
