Someone told me that the difference between ζώο and ζώα is that the first one I more of an infinitive, I didn't really understand though. Could someone use it in a sentace for me?

The difference between " ζώο" and " ζώα" is that the first is singular (animal) and the second is plural (animals).


Αγαπώ αυτό το ζώο. = I love this animal.

Αγαπώ τα ζώα. = I love animals.

Can somebody use the word "ζώο" and refer to a person?  Certainly:  Humans belong to the animal kingdom, therefore they are "ζώα".  However if somebody calls you "ζώο" with an angry tone, it is most probably an insult.
