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!

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
