The yawning action has several functions, and it is not something that is for its own sake. Sometimes we yawn out of boredom, tiredness because we are sleepy or just like a sigh. But only humans do it? It is interesting to know that there are many animals, mainly vertebrates, that can also. Among other functions, yawning serves to give oxygen to the brain and lower body temperature, thus increasing alert levels. Of course, if a human yawn, it’s not very funny, but if an animal does, the action has another charm.
