We went to the Bronx Zoo three times
this summer. (The first time we got rained out, so we had to go two more times. We still
haven't seen everything, but we've seen enough to last us till the spring when we can go again.
This is some kind of african antelope (whose name I don't remember, and isn't named on their map).
This was taken at one of the
Tiger Enrichment Sessions. Everyone was rather excited, and a little nervous being that
close to the tigers with only a wire mesh screen between us.
And another shot of one of the tigers
Herons. Just herons.
And a scary peacock that Tina thought was going to attack her because it was so close!
The MANDATORYzebra shot
And three monkeys escaped from the monkey house, and I was able to get a picture of them before they were recaptured.
Oh, wait a sec...
That's Eddie, Allie, and Tina. My mistake!
And another Dwarf Mongoose
A sleeping leopard
And another picture of the SAME sleeping leopard
And a REALLY big picture of Giraffes
Eddie next to Primate skulls (And yes, that's a human skull right next to him)
Babboons are interesting
Especially ones cleaning each other.
Turtles are cool too. They had a whole bunch of different turtles in this one pond.
I don't think we managed to spot each of the different kinds. (Maybe next trip)
Tina on the Komodo Dragon statue
And Allie AND Tina! (Allie wasn't real happy that Tina
was such a camera hog. )
And I had to get one more picture of Eddie!
A GIANT Boa Constrictor. Eddie was rather impressed by this beast.
LOOK! Tina gets to sit on a turtle! (By the way, doesn't she look like cousin Laurie?
The front of the old Lion house
The mandatory Elephant picture
And another Elephant picture
They even had Sea Lions, which just reminded us of California
And traffic on the way home
And there's the accident that blocked the Bronx Parkway for hours!
