"Animal print-wearing visitors will be handed grey boiler suits and ordered to wear them everywhere in the park so as not to antagonise or excite other animals including lions and tigers."

I can't wait for the first woman to go on a campaign about her rights being violated.

I find it hard to accept that it is particularly harmful for animals to be "baffled" or "puzzled". Are animals in the wild ever baffled or puzzled by natural events, and if so, how do they deal with it, other than running around looking for a human curator to remove the offending stimulus.

No doubt sensitivity scientists are busily at work trying to perfect a mechanism that will stop solar eclipses, and the senseless slaughter of the animal kingdom that arises from that puzzling phenomenon.

Apparently, the Media, having exhausted all the remaining myths from whose darkness the human race slumbers in ignorance, now sees fit to hire a beautiful model to baffle a giraffe for the benefit of their cameras, in order to slam this empirical truth home for the betterment of Creation.

Yeah that's a real scientific observation that they made isn't it? Idiots.

If that's true, it's really interesting.

I find this interesting also, since we have been told animals don't see color. Seems they see color and pattern.

Who ever told you that ALL animals don't see color? That would render the protective coloring on some insects, snakes, and birds moot. Some species see colors, others don't.

Most ungulates see only shades of gray.
