One of the most frequent question I am asked when I show pictures of the animals I care for has always been “how do you tell them apart?”.
This feat it exceedingly easy, each and every individual is as unique as a fingerprint.
Here’s an example exhibiting the difference in facial features in male red foxes.
Upon closer inspection, it can be noted that facially speaking, most male foxes differ in black patterning and snout shape.
It’s just that we only have a limited amount of money, and have to divvy it up accordingly…
But giant pandas are still cool, and I’m totally in favor of keeping them around if it doesn’t drain an excess of our conservation money! They’re adorable, and the wild ones are vicious to humans, and their diet and sesamoid-bone”thumb” is an amazing example of very quickly-adapting evolutionary movement in carnivores.
Besides, who could hate panda cubs?
