The Calgary Zoo

Recently had a little road trip and got to spend some time at the Calgary Zoo.  Their extensive collection was certainly entertaining and before we knew it most of the day was gone.  My love of Tigers and the fact that they have a number in residence was my motivation for the visit, and while there, I fell in love with this little guy (or gal).  This is a red panda, native to the eastern Himalayas and southwestern China (thanks Wikipedia).  They are about the size of a raccoon (to whom they are apparently related), and like your average panda, feeds mainly on bamboo.
