Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax with a trip to the animal kingdom!

  • “When most people imagine a panda, they instantly envision an adorably fluffy, black and white bear — but this very special animal named Qizai will defy preconceived notions.” – The world’s only known ‘brown panda’ will fascinate you
  • “Sloths may be the world’s slowest animal but they are also one of the most curious. The mammal spends the majority of its life in the rainforests of central and south America – sleeping, eating, mating and even giving birth in the treetops. Most of this time is spent hanging from branches using its fantastically long fingernails (okay, technically claws) but occasionally the creature does venture down onto the forest floor.” – International Sloth Day: 21 things you never knew about world’s slowest animal
  • “The photo editor himself said: ‘He asked if I could “edit his photos” like fine tune them. ‘I asked if I could just do the whole thing for him and made some bullshit story about how much I know how to make the perfect profile (I don’t) so he asked me to make him the perfect one.’” – Guy secretly edits sloths into all of his friend’s Tinder photos
  • “In her reporting on the animal, NPR’s Jackie Northam described it this way: ‘The pangolin is about the size of a raccoon and looks like an artichoke with legs. Its head and body are covered with an armor of thorny scales, giving it the appearance of a reptile. When a pangolin is scared, it curls up into a tight ball.’” – Pangolin, The ‘Artichoke With Legs,’ Earns Top Trade Protection
  • “There’s even evidence that a wombat dermal shield can be used as an offensive weapon, a la Captain America. It’s thought that when a predator becomes too persistent, the wombat can slam its butt against the roof or walls of the burrow and literally crush the skull of its enemy.” – Wombats have buns of steel – and they might literally be deadly
