Went to the Potawatomi Zoo last Saturday. We were having a good time walking around looking at all the animals, and I was trying to work in saying “Potawatomi” as much as possible.

I looked ahead at the next animal and wondered, what in the world is that? Looks like some kind of fox or something. I went and looked at the sign and it said “Red Panda.”

What?! Wow, I thought, I was way off. I would have never guessed it to be a type of panda. Of all things. I watched it walk around a bit, climb around in a tree and whatnot, then I saw another sign. Suddenly I felt vindicated and became extremely excited!

It was a Fire Fox! An honest-to-goodness real Fire Fox, whose browser namesake is so highly popular and revered!

I was thrilled.

Look at the resemblance!

I had a hard time trying to get a decent pic of him, the little guy would hardly ever face me. But what a thrill, to see firsthand a creature of such importance.
