    I notice a lack of the geeko, too. Or just lizards in general.

    ~Thomas~ I believe that the source code to life is written in Perl :-)
      ... or reptiles, even! -- I have passed Myrtle the Turtle on to the next generation.

      perl -e 'print qq(Just another Perl Hacker\n)' # where's the irony switch?

        What the heck? The list has snake and crocodile.

        I know I don't have all animals. That would make the poll too long. It's apparently too long already if people don't have the patience to read all the choices.

    Tux is an "Other bird".

      I read the whole list, and didn't see any real coherence. I kinda hoped the "named" cuddles would all have something to do with Perl/OS/Editor/Distribution/Whatever on-topic relation that matches, so a Camel/Dromedary would match Perl, a Lizard might be from SUSE, a devil to Debian, and several other IT related stuffed ones could probably be surfaced.

      I've never seen a penguin as a bird, as it cannot fly. I know several other (extinct) birds cannot/could not fly either (dodo, emu, ostrich), but the penguin deserved a spot in this list far more than a few other entries to my honest opinion.

      Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    Not Tux! Opus!!!

    Yes, he would be 'Other Bird', but he is a long term fav and sits on my shelf at work (the version with the shower cap and hotel towel is at home). I had him way before Linus started coding his masterwerk...ergo way before Tux.

    Also, I know this is an old thread but I had to....

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
