      Storm petrels are my favourite animals, mostly because studying them made me feel close to them and there are many fascinating things about their lives. I also like dolphins a lot. My least favourite animal is a bit harder to answer… I’m a bit afraid of cows, they always look quite scary to me, so they could proabably count as my least favourite because of that (though it’s not really their fault)!

      Oh Yes! I loved R2D2 when I was at school, & K-9 on Doctor Who when I was at University. I liked the movie “I, Robot” even though it was a little cheesy. There are some great famous talking spaceships which are basically robots, like HAL in “2001”, or the ship in “Dark Star”. I enjoy action movies too as long as they aren’t too gory. I have to admit that now that I talk about robots professionally, sometimes I get worried about how unrealistic robots are in movies. But if it’s a good enough movie I forget about that 🙂

      Right now, my least favourite is the mosquito (because I have a really itchy bite and was kept awake last night by that horrible wrrrrrrrrr sound they make!)

      I don’t really have a favourite….as I explained in another post, I am currently particularly fascinated by squid, but I have not found an animal yet that I’ve thought is boring!
