It is not only humans who have to deal with stereotypes. Animals have to deal with them too. For example, cats have to deal with the stereotype of being cold-hearted jerks, and while cats are indeed jerks, cats are also super affectionate to their humans. Birds have to deal with the stereotype that they are not loving, when birds are actually supper playful. And crocodiles, though terrifying, are also actually hilariously adorable underwater.
And now, we're about to defend sharks and make fun of some dolphins, tumblrstyle. Because for some reason, even though dolphins are super smart and could totally be jerks if they wanted to, they're the cute ones, while the hungry sharks who just see you as food if you're in their food bowl get all the bad rep. Pssh. We're not okay with that.
