An animal mascot for Fedora?

My suggestion... don't use animals. Some animals are holy in some countries,
some are hunted, some are near extintion... how will you choose an animal
without send a wrong message? is a complicated topic and I don't think that
"because is cute" must be the reason.

Instead, I made some "kids" that we can use, this are really like the "join
fedora" icons and represent US, the people that work with fedora, Mo also
use this kids in some talks and I have been using them in several artworks.

Just an Idea, and maybe we do need something beyond our logo to send a
message... but we need to think really "what do we need"

Here some examples:

hope to help :)
