Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Zoo was the zoo of my childhood and whenever I visit I get a few fond flashbacks. On this visit, I remembered there was an elephant named ‘Judy’ – so I googled it. Oh dear – sometimes, the outcome of a google search is not very good news. But, it was a long time ago and zoos were very different back then. My memory of Judy the elephant still remains sweet. Go visit!

A shout out out Kelly for spending some of her precious time with me during my visit. Fun!PPZ7.2016

Geoffroy TwinsGrowing up in Brooklyn, the Prospect Park Zoo was my first zoo and will always have a special place in my heart.  I hope you enjoy this week’s visit to Brooklyn where I feature an adorable new male calf, twin Geoffroy Tamarin babies, a red-eyed tree frog, dingo, red panda and much more.  Enjoy all of these fabulous faces and a very special Hanukkah greeting to one and all from my house to your house. If you subscribe to my weekly photos (and get them in your in-box) you are probably not able to view my videos directly from your inbox.  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 from Marley the Hanukkah singing dog. Marley is very talented. I have not been able to teach my dog Benny how to sing but he is excellent at striking a pose as soon as I approach him with my camera. Hanukkah

A visit to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Zoo is always fun.  Their collection of animals grows each month.  Check out the adorable baby golden lion tamarin born July 16th, to first time parents, Pablo and Teodora.  Pablo, was born in 2004 and came to The Prospect Park Zoo from Zoo Atlanta. Teodora, was born at the Baton Rouge Zoo in 2008. Their pairing was a recommended breeding match through the national Species Survival Plan, a program that works to ensure the genetic diversity of endangered species in zoos and aquariums.
The red-eye tree frog was awake and energetic, as were the two tufted deer juveniles, meerkats, hornbills, stork, sea lions and more.

No doubt you have heard the story of the Central Park Zoo‘s little bundle of joy born during the weekend of Hurricane Irene.  She has been named Irene Hope.  Check out her cuteness:
