A MUST READ 🐬➡️ Regrann from @whalesanctuaryproject - Why orca and many other cetacean brains challenge our view of human exceptionalism: a presentation by Dr. Lori Marino. WATCH NOW - LINK IN OUR BIO.
“Nowhere is neurodiversity more challenging than when members of our own species interact with members of other species. In these instances, we are faced with the task of acknowledging differences in mind while simultaneously avoiding the tendency to view those differences as rankings on a “natural scale”. We falsely view our species as the pinnacle of that scale and measure brain complexity and intelligence in other animals by an anthropocentric standard. Dolphins and whales challenge our concept of neurodiversity because their brains took a 95 million year old alternative evolutionary path to a similar level of complexity as the human brain. I will present insights from navigating the challenges of dolphin-human comparative neuroanatomy and psychology and how they are naturally extended to our views of neurodiversity within our own species.” - #regrann #cetaceans#whalesanctuaryproject#animalintelligence#orca#dolphin#whales#srkw
If you had to describe your kids personalities with animal like characteristics, which animal would your kids be?
So I just did an animal personality test for both boys, and it’s so funny because Josiah is something he loves and talks about nonstop! Plus it describes him to a t!
Avrams is so accurate too😂
I wonder if he’s going to start talking about about this critter too!
