Agouti Duties

So, Gamboa, home of Dinacon, is also home to these wonderful, adorable little rodents called agoutis – which bear some similarities to capybaras, but have been deemed infinitely superior for reasons I do not 100% understand. (Maybe because capybaras get all the press?)

I am here to document Dinacon but also am not very good at photos. Go figure.

Agoutis have pretty much become the mascot of Dinalab – Andy is always posting insta stories of their antics, the Dinatruck has an agouti decal, etc. – so of course they needed to have a pretty substantial presence here at Dinacon.

And they do – in the form of a series of Agouti-Do and Agouti-Don’t posters hung about the lab, reminding Dinasaurs of a few simple guidelines for being cool like an agouti (and not smug jerks like those capybaras).

Anyway, they are rad – great job, Andy! – so I thought I’d post a few of them:

So, to recap, just remember: At Dinacon or otherwise, it’s your duty to be cool like an agouti. Good luck out there!

P.S. This Dinalab poster doesn’t have anything to do with agoutis, but I still feel like it captures a lot of that Dinalab spirit.
