I wanted to visit the Bronx Zoo one more time before the cold weather sets in. Winter visits are fun too but who knows when we will get snow this year?  My visit proved great – highlighted by an adorable snow leopard cub, sea lion pup, growing tiger cubs, baby squirrel monkey, young gorillas and Angolan monkey and much more. I logged in at 7.5 miles but it was worth every step.

LoboIt is always a bit sad when zoo friends depart NYC for new adventures elsewhere – but the good news is that I get to visit them wherever they go. So last week’s return to see old friends at the Toledo Zoo was, as always, lots of fun.  The zoo always has new things to see. I was partial to see one of their new wolves, named Lobo.  Thanks to Jeff, Juan and Chuck for their time and generosity.  My visit was great – and I will be back.TZWINTER2015

TB50Essex County’s Turtle Back Zoo is celebrating its 50th anniversary this weekend. We took a short trip out to West Orange to share their joy. I am sure that my Jersey friends have many sweet memories of childhood trips to the zoo. Turtle Back is a growing Zoo with something for everyone.  Happy Anniversary to you!

The day before Hurricane Sandy hit New York City we innocently enjoyed some pumpkin enrichment fun with many of the beautiful animals at the Central Park Zoo. Hope these photos make you smile as much as I did while taking the shots.  There are still a few spaces left in my Fall Photo Workshop next Sunday, November 11th from 9 to 11 AM.  Guaranteed fun. Click here and sign up.

That’s my dog Benny (above) showing off his Halloween costume.  Sadly, Halloween was cancelled in the City but Benny got to wear his costume around Casa Lobo and get many treats.

We had a real treat this week.  We were invited by my friend, Marc Valitutto, to visit him at the Staten Island Zoo.  Marc is their new General Curator and Veterinarian.  He gave us a fabulous tour and shared some of the plans that he has for this 75 year old zoo.  I look forward to visiting Marc often and watch as his plans come to light.  If you look carefully, you will spot the zoo’s famous Staten Island Chuck, who gives Punxsutawney Phil a run for his money each Ground Hog Day. Not only was the zoo lots of fun, but we got to ride the Staten Island ferry and on the return trip and stopped to visit the beautiful 9/11 Memorial that is right near the ferry and well worth your time.  There is a photo of this lovely spot on the bottom of today’s montage.
