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:
