"Animals of the world have long inhabited the depths of the human imagination no less than they have occupied the natural habitats of our shared planet. There isn't a human society on Earth, however primitive or high-tech, that doesn't concern itself with animal imagery, whether the critters are domesticated or free-living." - David P Barash
