An American common dylanus is one of the most man-like of all animal species, with males resembling a European human male (but without beard and mustache, their skins don't wrinkle as they age, their hair doesn't turn white as they age, and non are bald) and females resembling female European humans (but their skin doesn't wrinkle as they age and their hair doesn't turn white as they age) in size, appearance, niche, diet, etc. Unlike humans however, there are no dylanuses that are obese or fat because their immune system, liver, and spleen help prevents obesity from being developed in dylanuses. This species lives in warm waters (much like Japanese macaques), forests, grasslands, cities, towns, urban, and suburbs parts of North America. The dylanus is immune to the burning waters it lives in, so it lives there, along with some water bugs, fish, newts, turtles, lizards, rodents, and otters, that developed a protective skin against the heat of this kind of warm water, called heatwater. If extinction events do happen the dylanus can go to the bottom of each lake and river with this type of water have air holes that goes 500-600 meters, providing oxygen for dylanus for next-generation dylanuses, so dylanuses could survive future extinctions. It is the least fastest dylanus species, running an average speed only about 9-15 miles per hour. This species of dylanus can escape from predators by going into warm waters where most predators, such as bears, wolves, cougars, and killer dylanus, can't follow. Despite its man-like appearance, it is actually a relative of meerkats, fossas, binturongs, civets, hyenas, and mongooses, making them not humans, but mongoose/carnivore-grouped mammals with a similar niche, but have slightly less intelligence, not much culture or tech, etc. This species of dylanus feeds on fruit, nonpoisonous mushrooms, insects, fish, lizards, bird eggs, small mammals, carrion, garbage, and man-made food. They can be friends to many humans, since it is the most peaceful and gentle of all dylanuses and land animals, with no recorded attacks on humans. Because of this, they make good pets and were first domesticated about 4,000 years ago. They are the first known animals (other than humans) that can speak clearly and in complete sentences. They are also the first non-human animals to understand what the words they say or look up means.
