Real-life Firefox

To Celebrate the arrival of Firefox 2.0, I’m presenting a photo I took of the real-life Firefox.

Congratulations, Firefox team!

    DaveFX: Yeah, I know a real firefox is actually a red panda. The Firefox logo itself isn’t a Firefox, but a fox that’s on fire.

    In fact, the Wikipedia page I linked to also stated, “…’fire fox’, a name which can refer both to the red fox and the Red Panda”.

    Since the picture resembled the application’s icon (which is actually a fox and not a red panda), and the term “fire fox” can also actually refer to a red fox (according to Wikipedia, at least), I simply left it without explanation in my blog post.

    Thanks for mentioning the red panda, however. It’s one of my favorite animals (long before the browser came out), and it’s always fun to see more pictures of the animal.
