I realised at the last second that I should add that "Again" in Terry's opening lines.

Believe it or not, in the 19th and early 20th centuries, humans were actually displayed in what are now known as "human zoos". Not just as an amusing commentary that all humans are merely animals, but as a racist display of so-called "primitive" humans. Thankfully times have changed.
