Can you identify the animal in this photograph?

If you can, send an e-mail to http://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.


The animal photographed in last Monday's Zoo Clues was a cheetah. It was identified by Joseph L. Rollins of Takoma Park.
