    I've been to so few UK collections - relatively speaking - this year that I haven't gotten around to updating my total since March and have completely lost track of what I have seen and where subsequently :p

    I'd pretty much given up on this as I didn't see that I was going to get any more of the random ones I don't already have before the end of the year. However, a trip to Dudley with friends this afternoon yielded a result I didn't think I would be getting:

    Dudley Zoo
    149 Asiatic black bear

    First damn time I've ever seen her in all the visits I've had there, and I was just busily telling my friends we wouldn't see her today as she'd be all tucked up warm and asleep inside... and there she was, curled up right under us next to the wall!!
