Which one is correct?
Should human be plural or singular. Plural should be correct, right? because there are many . and if so, animal should be plural as well?

Humans are animal too
Humans are animals too

Human is a singular noun. It is also an adjective. Animal has the same status. Therefore, to talk about more than one human or animal you must add an 's'.

Humans are animals too.

Or, you can say:

A human is an animal too.

The zero article before Humans and the indefinite article (a) before "human" bith serve the generic meaning of the word. I mean by generic that when you say "humans" you are referring to all human beings in general. This generic function is also achieved by saying "a human".
