While at the Prospect Park Zoo we were treated to many wonderful sights.  The two adorable baby boy Hamadryas baboons, born July 23 and 28, were a special treat. Mother’s Kaia and Rebecca were attentive and father Bole seemed very proud.  The zoo is celebrating the arrival of the new baby baboons by partnering with Heart of Brooklyn by offering New Yorkers an opportunity to help name them. Starting Tuesday, Aug. 31, everyone can submit their suggestions at ProspectParkZoo.com.

We also got to meet Dixie, river otter Ogie’s new mate, new Pirahna, Rock Wallaby as well as many other fabulous faces.  If you want to view these photos larger, go here.

Watch the little baboons in all their cuteness here:

We are enduring those dog days of August.  It is hot, sticky and while at the zoo you can easily see both the residents and the visitors catching a big yawn every now and then. And yes, that is my dog Benny, caught in the act of yawning too.  If you want to see these images larger, go here.
