Evolution of Head Butting
When we visited Nana and Grandpop this weekend, we took the kids to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. We saw the dinosaurs first, and I found the sign explaining dinosaurs' head butting behavior quite funny. I couldn't help but imagine another sign, this one explaining how the behavior continues today. Goats, rams, and sheep would be included, as they all butt heads to show dominance over one another. And then at the very end of this imagined sign would be Eric, who gleefully butts his head on legs, heads, bellies, butts . . . anything within range. His head is hard, I must say. Much harder than my own. He wins every time.
