Judgmental Animals

My friend Beaver Hayes and I have started a new website.

We went to the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska last weekend and took a ton of photos. We couldn’t help but notice a certain…disdain on the faces of most of the animals. At first we thought we were imagining it – you know…anthropomorphism and all that. But the more we looked, the more we came to accept that the animals were actually judging us. Being the scientitians that we are, we decided to document the evidence so it could be peer-reviewed by all of you. Your review and feedback would be invaluable to the study of animal judgmentology.
