We’re still not done fighting over math problems and optimal sleeping temperatures, but today brings yet another tweet that’s specifically designed to stoke fierce debate. In the video below, a hand is seen affectionately petting a rabbit. Or, uh, wait: Is that a raven? No, no. It’s definitely a rabbit.
Before things started getting too heavy with my coworkers, I decided to pose the question to a few experts. Because who else knows the bodies of ravens and rabbits better than the people who study them for a living?
“I definitely saw a raven—a white-necked raven,” said John Marzluff, Ph.D., a professor of forest resources at the University of Washington whose research focuses primarily on corvids, a bird family that contains ravens, crows, and jays.
