The oldest fairy tales are about animals, the oldest drawings depict animals, the oldest deities are animal-shaped. The Estonian word “human nature” suggests that our true nature is a mixture of man and animal. A fun and playful session, a carefree mixing of human and animal DNA. Still legal in the animation, have fun before being banned.
