Salvador Dali’s Bizarre Behaviour
Surrealist artist Salvador Dali once brought a small anteater to a TV-interview. Dali, famed for his peculiar paintings, brought the animal to the Dick Cavett Show on March 6, 1970. After his entrance he then tossed the mammal into the lap of the other guest: silent film star Lillian Gish. She was not amused. Neither would animal activists be today!
