      Great question!One of my favourite things about this job is that I think as long as there have been humans we’ve had a natural curiosity about other animals. I’m writing about my research now, and stuff Aristotle wrote thousands of years ago is still relevant, he was probably one of the earliest animal scientists, and was around at the time when the ‘scientific method’ was created.

      It’s great to see that Aristotle was asking the same questions we are now, but thousands of years ago! 🙂
