What is the Story Behind Gerald?

Okay, so this may already be a post and I just couldn’t find it, but what is the story behind ‘Gerald’ (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/5890862) and why is he not the official mascot of iNat yet? I’ve read all the comments and am not quite sure what is going on other than the fact that Gerald is some omniscient, omnipotent muskrat being. Can someone please explain? Thank you!

Hi @kokafishin, welcome to the iNaturalist Forum!

Yes, this was already a topic of discussion here:
https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/how-did-the-observation-of-gerald-the-muskrat-go-viral-on-inaturalist/7851

So I’m going to close this post and refer you to the previous topic.
