This week we took a ride out to Riverhead, Long Island to visit the Long Island Aquarium and Exhibition Center
(formerly called Atlantis Marine World Aquarium).

It is the home of lots of terrific, well lit, clean tanks filled with beautiful and amazing fish.  It is also the home to African Penguins, sea lions, seals, otters and four Japanese Macaques (snow monkeys).  The two older male snow monkeys, Pico and Juraco lived at the Central Park Zoo  and moved to a special new home which was built for them seven years ago. They were joined this year by two younger snow monkeys, Zeppy and Oz, who also lived at the Central Park Zoo.  It was great to see our little guys again. They all are looking great and seem to be enjoying the good life.

Enjoying this very short video of the Flamboyant Cuttlefish that we saw chowing down on some food. Be amazed at the tentacled-like projections that come from its mouth to grab the food.

Last Sunday’s Fall Photo Workshop at the Central Park Zoo was terrific. A good time was had by all. Below are some of the shots I took while enjoying the pumpkin enrichment for some of CPZ’s residents.

Know a teenager that likes photography?  There are still a few spaces left in my workshop called Be a Wildlife Photographer! for teens at the Central Park Zoo on Sunday, November 13, from 9 to 10:30.  You can sign up on line here.

I shot this video last week while watching our playful Banded Mongoose ravage their pumpkin. Happy Halloween!

I thought sharing some photos of adorable baby animals residing at the Central Park Zoo would give you a much needed smile on this most difficult of anniversary days. Smile at our baby banded mongooses, baby Patagonian cavy, Baby Irene Hope (the lamb born during Hurricane Irene), a Nicobar Pigeon chick, a young Red Panda, a very wet snow monkey, two gorgeous snow leopards and a very fast growing scarlet Ibis chick.

Check out the Fall/Winter Programs being offered at the Central Park Zoo including four of my photography workshops. You can also now register on line.

As I send out this Sunday ‘While at the Zoo’ photo montage it is raining buckets in Manhattan. My dog Benny braved his morning walk and is now rolling around on the rug attempting to dry himself off.  When the rain stops come visit the Central Park Zoo to see our Patagonian baby Cavy, featured in today’s montage at one day old.  While you are visiting don’t forget to see our snow leopards, two red pandas, baby ibis chick, Gus our popular polar bear and a fabulous collection of birds.

Prosimians are the most primitive of the living primates, which also include the monkeys and apes. The name prosimian means pre-monkey. Here’s a  link that explains the differences among primates, prosimians and apes. The beautiful animals featured in today’s photo montage include black and white ruffed lemurs, Japanese macaques, Sakis, cotton-top and lion-headed tamarins and can all be seen at the Central Park Zoo.

Check out this up-close and personal polar bear encounter we had at the Lincoln Park Zoo below today’s montage.  It is guaranteed to cool you off in this summer’s heat.

Happy Father’s Day!  Enjoy this photo salute to some of the animal kingdom’s Dads. On a different subject, yesterday was the celebration of the sixth anniversary of the day I adopted my little dog, Benny.  Savor this little video I created last year to honor his fifth anniversary.

NEW Zoo (Green Bay, Wisconsin) June 12, 2011

Six Zoos in Six Days – this year’s zoo-cation was a delight.  My plan is to send out one montage per day for the next six days.  Our first stop was to the NEW ZOO in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  Why the NEW ZOO you ask?  The Central Park Zoo‘s snow monkey, Manny, moved to Green Bay a few years ago.  Manny, now 10, sired two adorable babies and we just had to go visit him and the new arrivals.  He is surrounded by nine females and seems to be in monkey heaven. The zoo keepers were very generous with their time and we had a terrific visit.  For more info on these two new arrivals you can read from their website here.

Spring has sprung and the Central Park Zoo is lively and fun.  Come see another new baby mini-nubian goat named Barbara Rose and two adorable baby lambs.  If your timing is right you will also be able to see our male snow leopard, Bo, who made his public debut last week.
