CREATURE FEATURES - Animal & Pet News, Clues and Views

Creature FeaturesCreature Features features creatures and more... as time goes by we'll look at news, reflect on views, and generally muse about animals, pets and their owners, and who's to say which is which?

When Joseph Merrick (the "Elephant Man") stridently shouted "I am not an animal! I am a human being!", did he inadvertantly infuriate our furry friends? When David Byrne of Talking Heads sang "Animals think they're pretty smart," was he also inferring that "Animals think! They're pretty smart!"?

Questions for the ages to be sure, but our longstanding and ongoing fascination with pets and animals of all sorts remains remarkable regardless of rhymes or reasons. We hope you enjoy these posts for their own sake and for the sake of the subjects. (image via Gilbert Shelton, © Rip Off Press, Inc.)
