Zoo #6 of our ‘Six Zoos in Six Days‘ zoo-cation was the Brookfield Zoo.  It has over 216 acres of habitats with a lot of walking between exhibits.  Did I mention how hot it was?  Despite the heat we had a fine visit.  They have one sensational interactive polar bear that kept our attention.  Hope you enjoyed this six zoo-cation as much as we did.  We are already planning our next adventure.

Happy Valentine’s Day (a day early).  Woo at the Zoo is a common theme this year. Lots of snuggling, kanoodling and nesting going on all over the animal world.  See if you can spot two in the animal kingdom who live at Casa Lobo amongst the other furry and feathery faces.  Yes, it is not hard to spot both Madison the cat and Benny the dog.

And don’t forget – today is the second of four early opening hour Sundays for photographers at the Central Park Zoo. Get your tickets at 9 AM at the gate and enjoy the Zoo an hour before opening to capture the beauty of the Zoo’s collection. I’ll be there.

I continue my tradition of ending the year with a look from ‘behind’. It was a zoo-sational year for a zoo nut like me.  Along with some of my like minded zoo pals we were able to visit new zoos and places around the country and thanks to many wonderful new friends get some amazing behind the scenes access.  If you missed some of the visits, check out my photos from the Everglades, the Palm Beach Zoo, the Miami Metro Zoo, Flamingo Gardens, the Cleveland MetroParks ZooThe Akron Zoo, The Toldedo Zoo, The Erie Zoo, The Pittsburgh Zoo and a personal favorite there, the Polar Bear Plunge, The Columbus Zoo, The Louisville Zoo, The Cincinnati Zoo and the best Insect House anywhere, The Newport Aquarium, Pittsburgh’s National Aviary, the always wonderful San Francisco Zoo, a very worthwhile VIP tour of Six Flags Wild Safari, Southwick’s Zoo, Whale and Dolphin watching, out of Gloucester, MA, the Cape May Zoo, the Raptor Trust, the Philadelphia Zoo, and of course home base, the Central Park Zoo where we all met the newest residents, the Mountain Coatis, Lobo, Lev and Wolfie .  I am looking forward to new Zoo adventures in 2011. Don’t forget to watch Gus, the polar bear enjoying some snow in my video below.

The weather is perfect for a visit to the Central Park Zoo.  The summer crowds have gone and you can enjoy the playful Banded Mongoose, Snow Monkeys, three species of penguins, Black and White Ruffed Lemurs, amazing birds and much more.  Check out these photos to see what I saw while at the zoo.  For larger images go here.
