Day 179: Sun Bear

This is one of 2 new arrivals at the zoo!  The two brothers have come all the way from Cambodia and have only been here 2 days but seem to be quite happy in their new surroundings.  This guy was having a good look at all the humans but didn't seem in the least bit fazed by us and went off to try and figure out how to open a coconut.  They are beautifully black and glossy and have wonderfully expressive faces which wrinkle up in the most fantastic way.  They also have exceptionally long tongues which were dutifully stuck out at us all - I have no idea if this was meant as an insult or as a "look what I can do!".  They were kinda hard to expose - this doesn't seem quite right to me as the black isn't black enough but any darker and you lose all detail.  I'm happy with this though :-)
