My visit in the Zoo of Hanover, Germany last autumn....


Btw. I really enjoyed the concert of the 12 cellists yesterday evening !!
Unfortunately we didn't get a program of the music played. During the first half of the concert they played arrangements, impossible for me to recognize a composer even if sometimes I thought this.....
After the interval, the soloist did at least indicate some names like Duke Ellington, Michel Legrand and Astor Piazzolla (tango argentino). Called back for an encore they played the melody of Pink Panther. I still have the sounds in my head !!!....

Interesting links to discover these famous cellists:

Lovely! As were the links....'knowing when to keep one's mouth shut'...an excellent piece of advice, and not just for cellists!!

I would have guessed this to be a Leopard instead of a Jaguar. Reason...no spots in the center of the 'rosettes' on its coat. Is the Hanover you speak of in Germany?

Thank you very much Larry to my draw attention to the difference of jaguar and leopard. Even if I did search before sending my picture I note that you are right.

I have found now this link which helped me a lot:

I was in Hanover, Germany indeed.

I wasn't sure about the Leopard, Jaguar difference Ruth. There are Jaguars in the Southwestern part of the U.S. but hopefully not in Florida where I live. There are panthers here in N. Florida and I've heard their screams in mating season, but have not seen one. The screams are bone chilling, striking fear into anyone who is nearby...even in the house!
