"Humans are very similar to large primates like chimps, bonobos and orangutans," explained Dr. Barbara Burton, professor of pediatrics in the department of genetics, birth defects and metabolism at the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. "We are similar because we all evolved from a common ancestor."

Since most living organisms have DNA, there are similarities across organisms. Weeds have 18 percent similarity to humans according to the website "Putting DNA to Work." A mouse has 92 percent similarity, and chimps have 98 percent of the same DNA as humans.

Hmmm, are we closer to an ant or a bee? Any site that scales our dna for the animal kingdom? How about a horse versus a whale? Octopus are supposed to be bright fellows. What is our dna overlap there? How about birds? We have lots of gut microbes. Do those scale up over the nongut types?
