A Japan­ese man known online as “Toco the Human Col­lie” has gar­nered inter­na­tion­al atten­tion for his uncon­ven­tion­al lifestyle.

Toco spent over $14,000 on a hyper-real­is­tic Bor­der Col­lie cos­tume, aim­ing to embody the canine expe­ri­ence. How­ev­er, his aspi­ra­tions have shift­ed – Toco now desires to trans­form into a dif­fer­ent animal.

In an inter­view with Wan­Qol, a Japan­ese news out­let, Toco revealed the phys­i­cal lim­i­ta­tions of his canine persona. 

While he ini­tial­ly rel­ished the nov­el­ty of liv­ing as a dog, the inher­ent chal­lenges of quadrupedal move­ment proved daunt­ing. “Due to dif­fer­ing bone struc­tures,” Toco explained, “repli­cat­ing canine move­ments with human limbs is very difficult.”

While repli­cat­ing anoth­er dog breed seems fea­si­ble, Toco aspires for greater vari­ety. He envi­sions trans­form­ing into a pan­da or bear, acknowl­edg­ing the imprac­ti­cal­i­ty of small­er ani­mals like fox­es or cats due to size constraints. 

Despite fac­ing crit­i­cism for his unique path, Toco remains unwa­ver­ing in his pur­suit. A pre­vi­ous inter­view with The Post high­light­ed his pri­or­i­ti­za­tion of the joy of canine embod­i­ment over phys­i­cal inconveniences.

Toco’s ambi­tious plans to expand his ani­mal imi­ta­tion reper­toire leave many curi­ous about his future endeav­ors. This unique jour­ney has sparked glob­al con­ver­sa­tions about human iden­ti­ty and the bound­aries of self-expression.
