Meat Eater or Plant Eater?
So I was talking with my 3yr old the other day and trying to explain to him that a tauntaun was a herbivore. I was explaining that one way to tell was because it had horns and that predators generally don’t have horns.
I really don’t think it should have horns. It is a blood-thirsty predator after all. We got into quite the debate over that but finally we decided it was probably an aberration, an omnivore that due to the frigid conditions on Hoth had to adapt by eating tauntaun meat. The horns are just vestigial remnants.
And then the kid picked up Darth Maul.
Final verdict. Vegetarian. Because he has horns.

Great training for the young one! LOL
Have a Super Tuesday and Happy Holidays!
BUT . . . where’s the LEGO in it ? No story for a 3yr old without LEGO me thinks . . .

I have a hard time envisioning Darth Maul grazing on veggies lol
Ray Park eats meat, I’m pretty sure of it. I guess a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away the rules of horns did not apply.
Yeah I doubt he would pack baby carrots and dip while out hunting Jedi.

Well applied powers of deduction!
Your 3-year old is quite an awesome thinker :)
Hilarious per usual Brent! =)
There all vegans!!!
very nice, I love Darth Maul
I don’t have horns and I eat meat!
But if he was a vegan he wouldn’t have the power to kill Qui-Gan. He would be busy trying to find some red meat for protein, and Qui-Gon would have chopped off his head.
I lack horns, and I am a vegetarian! :)
I love that you are having this discussion with a 3 year old. This will help him as he develops. Way to go Pops.
LOL – pretty funny :)
Yeah, it was kind of interesting…
Are you *sure*?
Yeah I was kind of impressed too :)
Usually the teeth are a good indicator, but…
Are you sure your son is only three? That is too funny. Have a great time while he’s still young. Each year is cool, but when they’re younger than 5, it really cool.
Isn’t it amazing how kids this age get so into this stuff … I mean right into it. I know some kids this age that can tell you ‘everything you wanted to know but afraid to ask’ about dinosaurs… Amazing!
Reasonably sure yep :)
And yes they are fun at this age.

nice to discuss that with a 3 year old…
Hey Brent, haven’t seen much activity from you on G+. Any chance those of us following you there could get an update about new blog posts?
D’oh… knew I’ve been forgetting something! I’ll try to keep that better updated going forward. Thanks!
