    I don't really think so..

    Are babies self aware? Probably not.. I know I wasn't aware that I live on a planet and existed as 'life' and all that.. how could an animal possibly understand that?

    Many animals are more intelligent than babies. Mentally handicap may not have enough brain capacity to realize that they are alive.

    yeah it depends on the animal like some dogs are really obideient and know if there gunna get into trouble if they do something. and some do it and act like they didn't do anything
    So there was this crazy party at my ESTATE last night, which was located next to a TERMINAL, in AFGHAN, just 10 miles from a local QUARRY. Everyone was totally wasted. The place was like a SCRAPYARD.There was this girl that said she wanted to DERAIL me. So i went to a RUNDOWN hotel in FAVELA, there was RUST everywhere. I felt her KARACHI, it was bare like a WASTELAND. The feeling gave me a HIGHRISE. I then entered her UNDERPASS, went so deep i hit her SUB BASE.She loved the INVASION

    Truthfully, it seems obvious that animals feel emotions. Or at least they have moods. When my dog is crying, I'm not sure if he's sad or bored or anxious, but at least he has a feeling. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not comparing the ability to feel emotions with the ability to know that one exists as an individual being, but modern science researches have concluded that although not all animals are self-aware, the most intelligent ones like elephants, dolphins and monkeys have passed tests that show their knowledge of them being individual beings. But in my opinion, not EVERY elephant is going to be self-aware. It's more of a static issue, just like not every human is a genius, not every animal will have self-awareness.

    I'm not too sure what you're asking by selfaware but animals DO have feelings. There's this korean show that I watch called Animal Farm(동물농장 in korean). Horses cry because they have been neglected by their owner because they lost a race(no violence, the trainer just used another horse). I've also seen dogs being abandoned by their families waiting on an island that they were abandoned on crying for days, monthes, or even years waiting for their owners to come back.
