 If you love small cats as much as I do then trot on over to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Zoo. They now have Pallas, Black-footed and Sand cats. What a treat. The zoo suffered terrible damage last year during Hurricane Ida but it is now fully restored and open every day. You can also see their new red panda, new baboon troop and much more. I admit to some bias as this was the zoo of my childhood. Check it out for yourself – you will not be disappointed.

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:

While at the Prospect Park Zoo we were treated to many wonderful sights.  The two adorable baby boy Hamadryas baboons, born July 23 and 28, were a special treat. Mother’s Kaia and Rebecca were attentive and father Bole seemed very proud.  The zoo is celebrating the arrival of the new baby baboons by partnering with Heart of Brooklyn by offering New Yorkers an opportunity to help name them. Starting Tuesday, Aug. 31, everyone can submit their suggestions at ProspectParkZoo.com.

We also got to meet Dixie, river otter Ogie’s new mate, new Pirahna, Rock Wallaby as well as many other fabulous faces.  If you want to view these photos larger, go here.

Watch the little baboons in all their cuteness here:
