I hope this animal should be in the wild, not in a fish bowl jumping in the air so you can get your jollys by getting splashed. Sadly, he cannot be returned to the wild nor should he be put on display for your entertainment. Go to a movie or read a book. No animal needs to be used or abused in pursuit of that endeavor.—Information Systems Essays
