Bronx Zoo

Who, me?

Cuddly looking lemurs

A mongoose can sleep a lot

King Vulture - only his mother could love that face!

Shouldn't his neck hurt?

Unusual looking Scarlet Ibis was new to us.

Maleos - the only birds to bury their eggs in a 3'...

Beautiful Violet Banded Starling

What's for dinner?

Handsome fella


Bronx, NY We said good-bye to Rhode Island and hit the road again. The Bronx Zoo in New York City is the largest metropolitan zoo in the US and among the largest in the world. If the definition of largest is based on physical size, that is certainly true. It requires lot and lots and lots of walking. On average, the zoo has 2.15 million visitors each year. We saw some new animals, some colorful animals and some familiar animals. It was a beautiful day for walking.
