    Not just a big brain, it's the part of a developed brain that gives us speech, as well as having hands and fingers that can make fine manipulations.

    No. That is not the only thing. We do have the largest brain of any animal that ever lived, but we are different in other ways. For example, are hands are extremely dexterous. We can touch the tip of our thumb with the tip of every other finger of the same hand. No other animal has hands that are as flexible. We also have a language that we can use to transmit knowledge to people we will never meet. We can for example read what ancient Egyptians wrote down and learn from them. In fact, our brain is not well developed at birth, and we are able to learn a good deal as we grow.

    LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS. Animals aren't as conscious about stuff as humans.You'll see this in humans too , some are so out of it. What about that person who is able to fall asleep which the clock goes tick tock tick tock loudly all throughout the night and yet this clown isn't bothered by this. This is a human who is less conscious than the person who would get bothered by it.

    To a great extent but it also requires opposable thumbs.
