CPZ Snow Leopard CubsTwo adorable snow leopard cubs made their public debut at the Central Park Zoo this week.  The twins were born on June 2, 2013 and now weigh about 30 pounds each. When fully grown they can be anywhere from 60 to 120 pounds. Zoe, the mother is seven and was born at the Sacramento Zoo and Askai is six and came to us via the Bronx Zoo but was born in a zoo in Berlin, Germany. The ‘awwwwwwwwwww’ factor was loud and clear from happy visitors who came to see the cubs this week. I encourage you to drop everything and visit us as soon as you can.  They grow up quickly. I dedicate this week’s photo montage to Zoe and the yet, un-named cubs.  If you scroll to the bottom you can see the very handsome Askai, the cubs’ father.

For those of you that are signed up (or want to sign up – there are spaces left) for the two photo workshops at the zoo this month will get to have a few private moments with the cubs before the public runs up the hill to see them. Click here and under Family Programs you will find: Grandparents Photo Series: Breakfast with the Birds next Sunday, November 17 from 8:30 to 10:30 and under Adult Programs you will find: Photo Series: Breakfast with the Birds two weeks from today on November 24th from 8:30 to 10:30.  Sign up – it’s fun and you will see these a adorable cubs for sure.

Recent news that the Bronx Zoo had three tiger cubs sent me traveling north to the Bronx yesterday. Who doesn’t love tiger cubs?  It was well worth the trip. The cubs are adorable.  Other delightful surprises included rock hyrax babies, a whole bunch of dwarf mongoose babies, a young sifaka and brown ruffed lemur and an adorable young sea lion pup.  All in all – a fine Saturday visit.

Don’t forget my Central Park Zoo Fall Photography workshop class has been moved to Sunday, November 11th from 9:00AM-11:00AM. The original date (Sunday, November 4th) conflicted with the NYC Marathon. This class fills up quickly. Click on this Central Park Zoo link,  read all about the workshop and sign up for some guaranteed photo fun. There are programs and classes for all ages.  Check them all out and plan for a fun fall and winter zoo experience.

No – it is not Sunday, do not go back to sleep.  It is Monday but Time Warner has crashed in my area and there is no Internet or TV since Saturday morning.  So, I am positing this away from Casa Lobo.  Our trip to the Bronx Zoo was filled with delightful visions including six tiger cubs, growing lion cubs and the always sensational bear cubs.

There is nothing quite like going to a zoo on one of the hottest days of the year.  It is surely an endurance test – but we all managed to survive and saw some wonderful faces.
