Same video, but with sound. My goal is to illustrate how, without context, Elsa sounds like she’s on the verge of a murderous meltdown. But, because we’ve watched without sound first, we can see that this is very healthy play(Elsa is disengaging after the initial play bite, not “picking on” cookie or bullying, and not being overly rough.) even though Elsa sounds that way. Cece is also just like this, with the visceral growling, when she plays with the tire swing(and also why I know what I’m seeing here). It’s so important to consider the entire context of a behavior before deciding what it means!
