There is and always have been a debate in the scientific community on the subject of consciousness. “Are the humans the only species that have consciousness?”.
To me, this question is just like another rather weird question we still seem to be looking for the answer to: “Are we alone in the Universe”? Pffft.
The way I see it, we all have it. I mean all animals. May I be wrong? Of course I can, but it’s not about being right. This is the point of view I have and it’s in fact the only thing I can share with you.
