Firefox

I'm sure many of you use the Firefox browser for surfing the web, but I'm guessing that many will also have never seen a real firefox before.


We recently had a weekend staying with friends near Oxford, and one of the things we did was a trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park which have a pair of Red Pandas; otherwise known as a firefox.

Now before you all shout that the icon for Firefox doesn't look like a Red Panada it isn't intended to as the designer actually modelled the icon on a Japanese drawing of a fox!

I've seen several red pandas before, but had never heard of their other common name. Thanks Mark.
