"Balancing all of those options, I think we have just the right
mix in our designated mascot for 12.04 LTS. Ladies and gentlemen, I
give you the Precise Pangolin.
Now, I've recently spent a few hours tracking a pangolin through
the Kalahari. I can vouch for their precision – there wasn't
an ant hill in the valley that he missed. Their scales are a wonder
of detail and quite the fashion statement. I can also vouch for
their toughness; pangolin's regularly survive encounters with
lions. All in all, a perfect fit. There's no sassier character, and
no more cheerful digger, anywhere in those desert plains. If you
want a plucky partner, the pangolin's your match.
