Twitter, Katy, Katie discussed on Ridiculous History


But it's very important to remember that as much as we won't to anthropomorphized these things these creatures are fundamentally different animals, and there's not a there's not a really compelling reason to take one out of the wild other than conserving the species. Right. And I think that's something that we we hit on a lot with these stories. Yeah. No. I completely agree. And I think this is a really awesome way to take this out of that kind of fairy tale realm and do a little bit of a reality check. So thanks again for giving us that Katy I have one more question. This is purely for my curiosity and probably for our listeners as well. Do you yourself have any pets? I do. Yes. So I have a dog named cookie. She is a pretty good girl. Tastic? I just I was going on the off chance that you might say. I actually do have a rhino blood. Let me explain please say allude to cookie for us. Thank you as MacOS. Thank you so much for coming on the show, and shedding some light on the Nick Ma of rhino intelligence and the life the inner life of animals in captivity. Yeah, for sure and this thing that you do on the regular on your incredible podcast creature feature. Can you tell us a little bit about that? And where folks can find you and it yes. So we talk about human behavior and also animal behavior, and sort of the crossroads of these two seemingly different worlds, and I think as we have these discussions, we find out that even though you can't necessarily completely anthropomorphized animals. There's a lot of interesting crossover and behaviors that you'll find an animal. That are eerily similar to our own. And we look at it from the perspective of evolutionary, biology, and research and clinical psychology. And so you can find us our podcast is called creature feature and it's on itunes wherever you get your podcast and also the iheartradio app. And also you could follow us on Twitter at creature feet pods.
