I was a peripatetic natural sciences teacher with a load of animals and other teachers doing a one day blitz at schools. We had a crow, rescued from injury, who we each gave freedom to hop about the classroom we were giving a show in (makes science much more fun). It was curious about everything - other than escaping. American crows are smaller than British ones so kids weren't afraid of it.
I think humans are animals that can laugh at other animals, make them into deities, use them for experiments, talk baby talk to and write poetry about their awesomeness in creation - while causing them all to go extinct. I don't think we're really fully conscious animals but we're a bit more than the others.
I haven't yet seen a raven here - hoping to.

A pet crow would make science so much fun. Especially if you could get it to take the physics classes.
If you want to see a raven you're best off heading up north. Scotland is good for ravens. Or the Lake District. Given how HUGE some british crows can be it's kinda difficult to be 100% sure what you're looking at. Apart from a massive black bird.
