Since his escape (!) from the National Zoo to one of D.C.'s more bar-filled neighborhoods in late June, Rusty the red panda has been under observation by Zoo staff, and out of public view. (Mostly -- the Zoo has been sending out completely charming photos of the guy on Twitter and Facebook.)
As of Tuesday, Washington's arboreal Houdini -- who is believed to have used a saggy tree canopy to effect his getaway -- is back on display. And how!
Here are more photos from Rusty's first day back with Shama -- do you think he looks like he might be planning another escapade?
Hey, remember that time a red panda went missing from the National Zoo?
We missed you, Rusty -- next time you're going out, leave a note, eh?
