he's very cute...I may have seen one or two at the zoo here but not sure.

my guess he was a human-socialized "pet" who escaped or was left by someone.

I was curious and found this list of intriguing facts about them - including that only Atlanta Zoo has one, so I was incorrect about possibly seeing one at the zoo here.
