Renowned British naturalist Sir David Attenborough took some time out from exploring the Great Barrier Reef and soothing the public with his silky voice to answer fans’ questions on a Reddit Ask Me Anything thread Wednesday afternoon.
Though this answer conflicted slightly with another response in which he said if he could transform into any organism, he’d become a bird.
The contradiction was not lost on Redditors.
But it’s David Attenborough, so we’re gonna let this one slide.
We also learned that his favorite native British animal is the harvest mouse.
Best of all, we got to see his excellent sense of humor in action.
