    Not necessarily "mad." Stupid llamas spit at you when they're fighting over which one gets to eat out of your hand. That's when I just walk away. They learn to take their turns.

    A dog will roughhouse but other animals I've experienced require being gentle. If you roughhouse your parrot, even if it's otherwise tame, yer gonna get bit. Or try playing with your horse as if it were a big dog and see how that works for ya.

    ^^^This is very true. *Some* house cats can be trained from kittens to NOT scratch and bite but it takes persistence and the ability to speak 'feline'.

    My students in my social psychology course have to explain using social psych theories why humans find this funny. Haha

    Ummm......let's see.....he's in a cage he can barely turn around in and has no freedom to roam the country side like he is meant to do. And he has some douchebag taunting him for laughs. I can't imagine why he's mad. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Yeah, to some degree maybe. I've never played with them much due to allergies but from what little I did, it seems you can play rough but only up to a point and then they hold a grudge. Not that cats can't be trained for some pretty cool tricks. I'll never forget the Key West guy with his sunset cat performances. I used to watch them all the time many years ago.

    I think this is partly why dogs and humans bond so well. I don't understand the precise mechanism of it, I never studied it, but it just seems we play well together. My wolf puppy was great at wrestling. 100 lbs of muscle & fur. When my brother would visit I don't think he was coming to see me but to play with the dog.

    I would think but I don't know that the higher intelligenced marine mammals might play like that with humans too. But even if so, like I say I don't know, I've only petted a few in controlled situations and in the open ocean swam with them but I wasn't about to push my luck. Intuitively it seems like if they would roughhouse with ya, but even if so, I could see that quickly get out of hand.
