Had another chance to spend the day working at the Prospect Park Zoo this week. The zoo looks beautiful and the collection animals active. I probably spent too much time watching the baby red panda Ban Li and and his mom, Willow. Go visit if you can.

One of my favorite books as a kid was ‘ A Tree Grows in Brooklyn’ by Betty Smith. Today’s photo montage salutes the Prospect Park Zoo which grows (just like that tree) with each of my visits. I have mentioned that the Prospect Park Zoo was my childhood zoo and it still holds a special place in my heart. Go visit!

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!

Red Panda CubsWe headed to Brooklyn to see all of the zoo babies now at the Prospect Park Zoo.  A terrific, fun visit included their five month old Red Panda cub twins, Geoffrey Marmoset twins, baby baboons and a young sea lion pup. Speaking of babies, below today’s montage you can see photos of my two adorable 2.5 month old kittens.  If you are on facebook, you can ‘like’ their page (Audrey and Roberta).  It is fun, you get a photo a day and they have a fast growing list of fans.

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

The Prospect Park Zoo is the first zoo I ever visited – way, way, way back when I was a child growing up in Brooklyn.  It, thankfully, is not the same zoo that I remember but now a wonderful, ever growing collection of beautiful animals.  Southdown sheep, Fred and Ginger recently has a lamb,. There is a terrific new cow named Tetley, baby dwarf mongoose pups, an active frog collection, fabulous birds and of course, lots of primates.  Don’t forget to visit the walkabout to enjoy seeing the kangaroos, dingoes and very friendly Cape Barren Goose.

Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Zoo director Denise McClean introduces us to two pairs of dingoes now making their debut: Alkira and Binda, and Dacu and Cobar. Naturally, these four dogs, who hail from Down Under, have been given Aboriginal names. If you subscribe to my weekly Sunday 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 selections below the dingo photo montage.


The Prospect Park Zoo’s four dingoes will only steal your heart – not your baby. Much has been made of the famous line “The dingo ate my baby” from the 1988 movie a ‘Cry in the Dark‘ starring Meryl Streep:

Paradies of this famous line are plentiful including this one from a Seinfeld episode:
