Science: Ovis aries juvenile.
FtK:  Cute!



Science: Austropotamobius pallipes
FtK:  Icky!

A wee quiz:
One of the above species is endangered and legally protected.  One of the above species is a valuable part of natural ecosystems while another is responsible for large scale environmental degradation.
Please discuss the relationship between cuteness and the conservation value of species, and how these relate to the ethics of killing them.

Extra credit:  Discuss how this illustrates to why emotional considerations make for crap science.

Extra extra credit:  Provide your favourite recipe for lamb.

Post of the week, anyone?
