Why would "god" have one set of rules for everything else and a different one for us?

I assume by "in nature" you mean the animal kingdom. To me, animals don't appear to have the ability to understand externally imposed rules, at least not the full meaning. Dogs can learn not to pee on the carpet, but do they understand "right" from "wrong", or is it just learning to please master? I don't know that you can teach rattlesnakes anything, much less "Don't bite the hand that feeds you".

So I'm not sure how God could give the animal kingdom rules in the same way he does for us.
