And why does it have to be an animal at all? I for one can't identify
with any specimen of the *nix bestiary. Except maybe with the bsd
daemon, but that's technically not a beast. But all those foxes,
chameleons, penguins and what not -- I don't know. If an animal at all,
I would definitely prefer a cockroach. But it's maybe hard to
manufacture from plush. What about a tarantula? Fluffy by design.
