I've been a fan of bats for a long time. It really goes back to the fact that Batman is my favorite comic book character. But it goes beyond that, too. Bats are just plain cool. So now Radar sits on top of my monitor, observing everything.
Elephants are really cool, too. Maybe I'll have a discourse on them sometime in the future. I can talk about the (somewhat) recent discovery of a whole new species of elephant, the forest elephant, for example.
