Are you proud of your career growth and ready to rest on your laurels? We hasten to disappoint, you still have something to strive for! Here are examples of incredibly successful representatives of the fauna, whose career success will cause the envy of many ambitious citizens.
That, sir, is the proper way to address a royal penguin in the service of the Norwegian Royal Guard.
Unlike you, this feathered officer did not run to the vet for a certificate of flat feet when he received a summons to Edinburgh Zoo, but was determined to learn military science.
Nils began his service in the Norwegian Guards with the modest rank of corporal, but after receiving the rank of sergeant in 1987, he died (or maybe he was recruited by MI6). In honor of Sir Ulaf, there are two full-length bronze statues (these penguins grow no more than 1 meter): one in the native Scottish zoo, and the second-in the headquarters of the Royal Guard in Oslo.
Stubbs is a red-haired tailless cat who twice (in 1997 and 2012) became the honorary mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska. Little is known about the socio-economic reforms he carried out, but he still managed to raise the tourist potential of the area entrusted to his furry paws.
But big politics comes with a lot of risk, and Stubbs learned this the hard way when he was attacked by a dog during his usual evening exercise. The result of the attack on the mayor was a broken chest bone and a punctured lung. After recovering from the attempt, the persistent cat continued to perform its direct duties. On July 21, 2017, Stubbs died at the age of 20.
A cow named Liberty Cincinnati became famous for its escape in 2002 from a slaughterhouse located, as you might guess, in Cincinnati.
According to eyewitnesses, suddenly realizing her immediate fate, the burenka jumped over a one-and-a-half-meter fence and hid for ten days in the vicinity of the city, after which she was caught. Local residents bought a life-loving cow from the slaughterhouse, and for showing resourcefulness handed her the keys to the city.
Cat Tama served as the Executive Director and station supervisor of the Kishi Railway Station in Kinokawa, Japan, from 2007 to 2015.
Tama's official duties required him to wear a cap and meet passengers. The cat's labor was paid for by regular feeding and changing the tray. The result of the cat's management of the station was a 17% increase in passenger traffic and a profit increase of more than 1 billion yen.
Tama died on June 22, 2015, and a small chapel was built in her honor on her native Kishi platform. Tama was also promoted posthumously. From now on, she is the patron goddess of the Wakayama Electric Railway.
Thunderstorm of Penguins and Sea Lions - Keiko's toothed whale has gained popularity through filming in the "Free Willy" movie series.
The killer whale was caught off the coast of Iceland in 1979, and became widely known in 1993 after filming in films. At the same time, the ever-disgruntled and unknown animal defenders began to demand that Keiko be prepared for release into her natural habitat, and even established a fund to raise funds for the rehabilitation of the whale.
In 2002, Keiko was released into the wild, but, accustomed to people, he could not adapt to life in freedom and settled off the coast of Norway, where he continued to be monitored by specialists. Despite leaving, 27-year-old Keiko died a year later. In the Norwegian city of Hals, on the shore of the fjord where the whale hung out, a monument was erected to him.
The most famous primate artist, whose talent was admired by the great Pablo Picasso.
Chimpanzee works, according to people who understand art, can be attributed to abstract impressionism (in other words, they are chaotic multi-colored strokes of paint, often going beyond the boundaries of the canvas). Anyway, in 2005, three of Kongo's paintings sold for more than $ 26,000.
The first dog to embody the role of Lassie on the wide screen was the long-haired collie Pel. Despite the fact that Pel was a male, he coped with the role of a bitch perfectly (long hair was on his paw).
It was rumored that an extra take on the set was a rarity. Subsequently, Pel became the prototype of all the dogs that played the role of the wise collie, and brought his owner Rudd Weatherwax the rights to own the Lassie brand.
