Anthropomorphism is the attribution of a human characteristic to something non-human. Eduardo Serio is excelling at attributing human characteristics to his young animals. It is demeaning and a threat to the way these animals are perceived. They are no longer perceived as apex predators. They are now perceived as tame domesticated pets. And as with all wild animals, there will come a time where their resentment will manifest into an attack. No amount of “love,” a word Serio continually throws around, will stop this from happening.
