    Although I have threatened to write a forum bestiary, frankly it seems too much like hard work. Therefore I'm outsourcing it to you, if you're interested. That's right: write your own entry for yourself. Preferably accompanied by a picture of a suitable animal real or imagined or a bit of both. (Uploading pics is absurdly easy. Remember that if you rely on links to an outside site, the image may eventually disappear, which would be a sadness for future generations).

    For example, my entry might look like this:



    anothersam. Both nocturnal and diurnal, but prefers the cool of the night/very early morning. Doesn't bark or bite; if you hear a growl, that's probably his stomach. Natural habitat: Road Cycling and General Discussions, though has recently been set loose in Society, Culture & Politics. Also frequents a small corner of Cycling Clubs and visits Recreational and Other Rides and the Cafe often enough to be a semi-regular. Likes shiny things. Doesn't run in a pack but does enjoy company that doesn't bite.

    That's just a skeleton. Fatten yours up as you please.

    Nothing dodgy yet, but there could be, if you apply yourselves.

    If I have to choose an animal ! Then I would be a tecnophobic donkey, a simple load lugging creature with a simple mind who's only purpose in life to well carry what ever when ever (being a tecnophobe hance no picture cause it don't know how lol) usualy for it's mistreses purpose and pleasure. Fortunately she is quite kind and never feels the need to whip the poor beast.

    What the mind can conceive an image search and limited photoshop skills can't always achieve. This is the best I could do for you:
