@JeremyECrawford Speak with Animals spell: "You might be able to persuade a beast"
What is the intent here? A Druid, that casts it, must make an Animal Handling (Wisdom) check OR a Persuasion (Charisma) to "persuade" the beast? (RAI and not Variant: Skill with Different Abilites)

If you're able to talk with a creature, you can try to convince it to do things. You do so through roleplaying, ability checks, or both.
For guidance, see the "Social Interaction" sections in the "Player's Handbook" (p. 185) and the "Dungeon Master's Guide" (p. 244). #DnD https://t.co/2r0JTBNy4O
