He really IS contented, isn't he! Perhaps there's even a hint of "What'd'ya want, eh?" in his gaze. Nice shot.

Love the shot, we have plenty of these little guys near Colorado Springs, CO., but have never been able to get a clean photo like yours. Thanks for sharing.

Looks like a creature you would find in the movie lord of the rings. He is getting ready to tell you something, I'm just not sure what it is. Great shot, the wife had a good chuckle.

Holding a K20 in those paws? He better have a pedicure first. I'm unsure if such long claws are usual or a consequence of zoo life where they don't get worn down as regularly or as much as in the wild. Do zookeepers need to trim them the way vets commonly need to trim dog/cat claws? I don't know.
