My avatar is a mantis shrimp, my favourite metazoan. They have the most complex eyes which are mounted on stalks and can move independently of each other (cool or what?)! They have 12-16 photoreceptor cell types (we have 3!).
Questions (and answers):
GOOD questions tend to get good answers (and vice versa).
BEFORE asking a question, have you:

- grasped the dba.se Zeitgeist (what's it's all about ~ 15 mins)?
- checked that your question is on-topic (< 1 minute)?
To ask a good question please look here:
- Aaron Betrand (top poster here - dba.se specific)
- Another dba one

the MVCE - Minimum, Complete and Verifiable Example. See also the Short, Self Contained, Correct (Compilable), Example site.
