I don't think a human life is more important. That's just conceit usually based on a biblical mass delusion. Apart from that, yes, kin selection is real, and yes, it scales to the level of species. But part of being a human is being able to transcend instinct and make rational decisions on the basis of what's good for life as a whole rather than our own narrow little tribe of animalia.


this is untrue. if the mother of any of these creatures kills their own offspring, there's more possible repercussions for the human. if you as an outsider to the mother-offspring relationship, fuck with either of them, you will be punished.
