I woke up out of a dream vaguely based around the idea of Jurassic Park, only with animals from much later. One of the animals was an arctother, an extinct very large bear (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctotherium), only it turns out that its main form of defense wasn't teeth, claws, or anything like that, it was that you looked into its eyes and just really, really *wanted* to do what it wanted you to do.
I remember thinking that that was a hell of an adaptation.
