The sentient carrots are an often-overlooked exhibit from the Menagerie Of Wonders. Many people do not consider them an animal at all, but we have done extensive tests. The things are conscious – every bit as self-aware as any of the humans who look upon them. Every so often there is a terrible accident. A sentient carrot is picked up by some unwary visitor and munched upon, or fed to the humble goat. We are usually able to rescue it before it expires, but there is little one can do to heal a carrot. On those occasions the kindest course of action is simply to end the misery of its existence.
