No, it’s definitely a bird. But hey, you be the judge.
A video of a black animal getting a nice scratch is spreading quickly around the internet as people take sides in yet another great debate.
Daniel Quintana, a scientist at the University of Oslo in Norway, is responsible for all this — he found the video on an image-sharing website on Sunday and tweeted it, saying, “Rabbits love getting stroked on their nose.”
Since then, it’s blown up — all because Quintana played on a famous optical illusion wherein a rabbit looks like a bird, and a bird looks like a rabbit. His video alone has been viewed millions of times.
Davis told CNN that Mischief is actually already quite famous, especially for his talking. “He has gone viral several times with millions of views,” she said.
Mischief flies, talks, paints, and much more, she explained, calling him “a very talented bird.”
When he’s not getting his head scratched, Mischief works as an educational ambassador for his species, Davis explained, where he teaches people all about ravens, conservation, and the ways we all can help animals.
“He even recycles cans and bottles, showing that recycling is so easy, a bird can do it,” she said. “His talents are endless.”
Those talents, thankfully, do not include shape shifting across species.
