Link roundup

1. "Wikimedia and Facebook have given Angolans free access to their websites, but not to the rest of the internet. So, naturally, Angolans have started hiding pirated movies and music in Wikipedia articles and linking to them on closed Facebook groups, creating a totally free and clandestine file sharing network in a country where mobile internet data is extremely expensive."

2. "Adorable Prairie Dogs Brutally Kill Baby Ground Squirrels"

unlike tigers or other predators, prairie dogs are grass-eaters.


One especially prolific female executed seven babies in a single day. (By contrast, the prairie dogs never killed their own kind.)
3. Zootopia fun facts:
Clothing material is the same for all animals, so on a tiny animal, the cloth will look bulky and large and stitches will be large.


A giraffe has 9.2 million hairs! A new record for the studio.
4. New action figures based on Darwyn Cooke's designs available for preorder (Flash, Catwoman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern).
