This morning, Silicon Valley business magnate and suspected interplanetary savior of mankind Elon Musk answered the question we've all been dying to know: What's his favorite animal?

Musk tweeted his characteristically unconventional answer:

The Ravenous Bugblatter Beast, a nightmarish executioner animal from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, is described as being incredibly stupid and vicious, demanding a victim's name before devouring them. Lying about one's name sends the beast into a fury, "as there is nothing that transcends the differences between humanity and Bugblatter Bestiality like an untruth," according to the creature's Wikia page.

Interesting choice, Elon — might be good for you to talk to a psychologist about that.
