I can see some movement in a tunnel, but it's hard to make anything out.

I liked Ralph Fiennes in Quiz Show. He played villains in several movies IIRC, and it was kind of a relief to see him playing a regular 'good' guy. Ok, so not a great guy, but at least not a villain.

Are you in the right thread Tess?



I have to admit, I do check in the NMRs on a semi-regular basis. I check on MY panda baby every day. Love that panda...

No...he's not exactly mine per se.

You know the expression "it's so cute, it's ugly" ? I think naked mole rats qualify as so ugly they've gone past cute and into ugly again. Though awesome nonetheless! Thanks for the link.

I saw Tian Tian (poppa panda) about a month ago - I just died. I love pandas now! I am going to get (free) tickets for myself and my niece to see Tai Shan in a few weeks.

Actually, I think the National Zoo is pretty terrible. Other than the Panda habitat, at least as of the last time I was there (Spring 01), the majority of the animals were just in cage like structures, not in natural type habitats. The National Zoo really depresses me. I much prefer the Bronx Zoo. They are constantly working to make their animals as comfortable as possible, even if it means the zoo patrons can't see them half the time.

I'd much rather watch fully clothed rats, tbh.

Now that you have me obsessed with these webcams I thought I'd let you know that one of the naked mole rats brought its baby out into that intersection. Very cute!
