A prezzie!

Yes, it was wonderfully generous--I really appreciate the donor giving it to us. It's from a time (late 60s) and a place (South Vietnam) where awareness of endangered species was nowhere near what it is now, so it is even more rare a specimen.

It's a truly wonderful gift, and I really hope that my work on it is helpful in raising awareness on what sun bears face as a species.
