Anonymous asks:

Do you have a favourite animal? An extant one, that is.

That’s a tough one… I had a conversation about this with Jim the Editor, whose first reaction is that my favourite animal must be cats.  My response to that was that I have friends who are cats, but that’s not the same thing as cats being my favourite animal (otherwise I’d just pick humans), and that just confused the hell out of him because Jim doesn’t really “get” pets.  I think I might go with the tuatara, which is a reptile we have in New Zealand that isn’t a lizard but looks like it should be, lives for over a hundred years, and has a secret third eye (I am not making any of this up).
