MJ-TamanduaIt was fun to introduce a group of seven fabulous ladies to the Staten Island Zoo this week.  Once again, General Curator and Vet, Marc Valitutto, was extremely generous with his time and access.  A shout out to Marc and all of the fabulous animals at the Staten Island Zoo.

Want to see some beautiful birds up close and personal? Next Sunday, June 1 is our final Breakfast with the Birds photo event of the season at the Central Park Zoo.  For details and tickets, go to the website here.SIZOOMAY2014

bear boysWe visited Essex County NJ’s Turtleback Zoo this week.  I have not been here in a long time and it sure has grown in size and scope.  The collection is terrific and we adored the amazing komodo dragon.  They are building a new sea lion exhibit that should be opening by summer.  A return visit is in order.

If you subscribe to my weekly photos (and get them in your in-box) you are probably not able to view my videos from your inbox image.  Just scroll up and click on the blue link (which is the name of today’s send) and it will take you back to my ‘While at the Zoo’ website where you can watch today’s video selection.  This desert rain frog (not at the Turtleback Zoo) is arguably the cutest thing I ever saw (and heard).  Enjoy this adorable creature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBkWhkAZ9ds

There is much to be thankful for this year.  I wish you all a happy, healthy and yummy Thanksgiving.  Today is filled with food and thanks.  Here are some images of some of the fabulous animals that I have seen enjoying food a plenty.  I have to get going and try to figure out how to cook that 12 pound turkey that is in my refrigerator before my guests arrive at 4PM. Gobble, gobble.

Central Park Zoo business brought us to the corner of New York State and the beautiful Niagara Falls/Buffalo area this week. A return trip to the Buffalo Zoo to visit old WCS zoo friends who now work at the zoo was lots of fun.  A special shout out goes to Shanna and Rob. They were generous with their time and it was greatly appreciated.  If you recall the Buffalo Zoo was the eighth and final zoo visited on our last zoocation in June. If you are ever in the area I highly recommend visiting this ever growing zoo.
