Red panda (firecat), Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. She was all alone when I shot this, but has since gotten a new playmate, Gordie. They seem to be taking well to each other. :)

Update 9-18-07!! - Ruthie gave birth to a single cub on June 17, 2007! Apparently she and her new playmate have gotten along quite well together :) Pics to come when the new baby emerges from the den, hopefully this month (Sept).
