I recently came up with an idea as to how and why awakened Zoans are in fact awakened Zoans. As Oda himself has stated, if a human eats the Hito Hito no Mi, they shall become enlightened. Could it be that this is what awakened Zoans are? For example a koala ate the koala Zoan creating minokoala. Which could also explain why the don't speak and only have simple human-like intelligence.. Rather than being a human-koala giving the benefits of both, he is instead essentially a super koala. Thoughts?
