Re: Does a tadpole's disposition stick with it after morphing into a frog?
My experience with "wild-type" animal individuals with atypically docile "personalities" is they often have other... quirks.
In other words, they tend to be the ones that get bullied and/or succumb to illness/issues.
It's not a hard rule, but something I'm pretty sure I've noticed. In nature, these doe eyed idiots would probably get eaten out of the gene pool in short order.
