Today's definition is inspired by Amy Sutherland recommendation that to successfully use Animal Training techniques, you must "Know Your Species". You must be observant and note their quirks, feeding habits and social structure in order to effectively influence their behavior. Most importantly, you should recognize what part of the animal's behavior cannot be changed! See: "What Shamu Taught me About Life, Love and Marriage". Thanks Amy! ~ James
