this now gives us one of two possible leads.
1) the class will belittle the miraculous creature of science and magic, squandering humanities connection to these creatures in the future.
2) the class will be fascinated and intrigued with Celestia and start asking questions that are hard to explain. <br / />
that's still a part of number 1.
you see if the children excepted little Celestia as a magical "Creature" they would treat her as a living sentient being.
belittling would include (but is not limited to) thinking she is a toy, animatronic, or lower intelligence animal.
