Sorry. ;)

I was under the impression it was just another attempt for Scholar to bring god (The Designer) in to yet another thread...

It is after all pretty obvious it's not a Photoshop image, seeing as I took the photo myself while at the Zoo...! ;)

No idea. The Black swan certainly wasn't put off by him being there, both were happily loose in the picnic area.

The Mara(?), at first we thought it was a statue of some sort, because it was motionless and there were people very near it. It was real though, it finally looked around, and when we went back past minutes later it had laid down, and disappeared altogether, later on in the day.

Daz--your picture looks like a combination of several animals photoshopped together. The rear feet area surely looks like those of a rabbit. The nose and mouth look a little like a lion or some other big cat. The ears look like those of a tiny bunny. The eye? Perhaps a rabbit or squirrel.

The Designer does use patterns of similar parts in different animals.:):)

This isn't a perfect fit - but something like a Mara?
It's certainly a large rodent...

Yes, I think a Mara might just be what it was?

We've just come back from a few days in Cornwall, and on one of our trips out we went to Newquay Zoo.

This animal was just stood out in one of the picnic areas, anybody know what it is...? I could find no mention of it in the zoo's programme....
