Trifles make perfection, and perfection is no trifle.

Not in a natural setting. We would be like small apes in the eye of big cats. They would hunt us down if they are hungry.

But we can make weapons and outsmart them with traps or teamwork. Or we can move in on their natural habitat and force them to live in Zoo's.

This ad didn't make sense to me because humans are indeed the top of the food chain. Natural setting? The Earth is a natural setting, and it's worked out pretty well for us so far.

On second thought, the concept actually plays off of the idea that humans are perceived to be the top of the food chain, but are actually not (according to these guys). Or maybe i'm overthinking this.

At any rate, i'll bet you won't find these ads anywhere near the San Fransisco Zoo.
