This cartoon reminded me of a section in my analysis post regarding children raised in the wild. Trevor, as seen, was raised in wild by sloths. He therefore behaves like a sloth by hanging upside down.
There have been cases where children were raised in the wild and develop no sense of language, empathy or morals. I wonder if this can be reversed since nurture does affect human behavior. Before the child lived with animals, and now the child will live with humans. Will the humans eventually influence the child to act like a person?
