That's very true, considering the fact that a Dane who stays inside would probably go crazy against a wild animal. Great Danes are about the size of a mountain lion, mabye a little bigger. there was a time when there was a huge black bear on my property, and when my dad saw it, he let my great dane, maya, out to get it away, and she darted right after it. and you remember that person who said a cheetah could kill a wolverine? well that makes sense, because wolverines are about the size of raccoons, small animals. so the great Dane would win.

Expertise

I can answer most questions relating to real or hypothetical situations. I have a better understanding of animal behavior and specifically predatory behavior and interspecies predatory relationships. Mammals is my field of expertise but I can do my best in answering questions regarding other animals. Small mammals are my favourite matchups. One or two prehistoric match-ups is OK, but please do not focus on them as they are outside my expertise.

Experience

Even before completing my degree I considered myself an expert in mammal behavior. Doing my degree only furthered my interest and knowledge in the subject. After uni I got the opportunity to spend 6 months in South Africa and Kenya where I spent nearly every day basically observing and studying the animals of the savanna.

Education/Credentials
BSc Degree in Zoology from the Melbourne University, Australia.
