How can you say that animals are not self-aware if you can have no way of relating to their mind?
Humans are self-aware. I think you can agree with that? Look at what humans have accomplished: civilization, technology, medicine, entertainment... Then look at what animals have accomplished. At most, they've, what, survived and adapted in limited and primitive ways? If animals were self-aware, they'd have something to show for it, and the world would be a whole lot different.
