You see an animal you’ve never seen before, or not in a long time and your brain makes it look like something you are familiar with.
Then as you realize it isn’t what you thought…theres a slight moment of nausea as it transforms into its real form.
ex: Once I saw a possum at a distance, my brain made it look like a cat…but its movements were nothing like that…so when it stopped being a cat and turned into a posssum, i got dizzy and nauseous. Just for a split second.
Same thing happened to me with a fox at a distance on a street.
Slightly related, i’ve seen PEOPLE i thought were people i knew…and let me tell you the second you start talking to them as if they are the person you know and you realize its someone you dont know…is very unsettling. Not nauseous, but weird for sure,
