I encourage you read the section under Ethology in the following link. I used the term anthropomorphizing rather loosely, describing how you were not unbiasedly describing the behavior, rather you were assigning a humorous and uniquely human label (goofy) to this non-human's behavior. People have a real problem separating cat and dog behavior from herps, who are almost exact opposites. I see too many people assigning behaviors unique to mammals to herps and it is the herp that ultimately suffers because of the misinterpretation.
