Can you identify the animal in this photograph? It will be featured next week in Zoo Tales, the photographic and cinematic view of the National Zoo that appears on this page and on our Web site, http://www.washingtonpost.com/zootales.

If you can identify the animal, send an e-mail to zootales@washpost.com. In addition to identifying the animal, include your name, phone number and home address. The first person to correctly identify the animal will receive a color photograph taken by Zoo Tales photographer Joe Elbert. E-mails are time- and date-stamped, so it won't be that difficult to determine who was first with the right answer.

If you want to look for help, here's the zoo's Web site: http://www.nationalzoo.si.edu.

Have fun, and good luck.
