      Animals have gradually evolved from previous animals. As for how it was born, and where it came from, maybe our discussion of the chicken and egg question might be helpful?

      And no, there was no Adam and Eve, it is a story in the bible, which some people believe, but there is no evidence for it.

      As Blanka said, check out the answers to the chicken and egg question here: https://niobiumj12.imascientist.org.uk/2012/06/24/what-came-first-the-chicken-or-the-egg-haha/

      Animals evolved. What this means is that single cell life forms evolved into life forms made up of lots of cells which then evolved further into animals.

      I don’t think there was really an Adam and Eve although there will have been at some point the first animals that could truly be called humans.
