"The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep" ... Robert Frost.

What type of animal is this not sleeping deep in the woods?

Joan Elizabeth, I thought somebody could tell me ... I have no idea. Some kind of bear ... ? It's the Paris Zoo.

The Frost poem - you know when was the first time I heard it? In the Don Siegel movie "Telefon" - it always reminds me of Charles Bronson.

I like it very much nevertheless, ;-)

Aw, what a cute ... animal! It looks pretty peaceful and quiet to me, though.

I didn't know that we have so beautiful animals in France. Good capture, c'est le cas de le dire!!

Martina said...

Ah, found it: it is a Red Panda, Petit panda, Ailurus fulgens.

I didn't visit the zoo, the photo was taken with a tele from the Jardin de Plantes.

Serge, lol - merci. Je l'ai libéré ensuite *g*.

kobico, yes, very cute.

Very nice shot, and appropriate quote too.

Martina said...

ruimnm, yes, it is.

Marcin, unfortunately I can't read it. I would guess, if this was a German balloon: some beer trademark, ;-).

CiB, thank you very much!

yann, out et il est vivant :-P
