student asking question

Does "I know" skipped between "Now" and "he's"?


Native speaker’s answer


No, "I know" is not skipped here because the sentence already implies that he knows the cub is being submissive since he can read the cub's body language. Thus it is not necessary to say "I know" in this case since he is telling us with confidence something he already knows.
