Central Park Zoo TOO

So here's the rest of the zoo pics.

There are four snakes in this enclosure. I think it was two tree boa constrictors and two ground boa constrictors. 
They share the enclosure with a single gecko. 
Who appears to spend most of his time at the tippy top of the tree trunk. 
That's as far away as he can get. 

There were a few shared enclosures I thought were pretty funny. Like they keep bats together with alligators. This keeps the bats flying which is what the people want to see. 

This is the enclosure for the Golden Lion Headed Tamarin.

It's a little tricky to spot, but one of these branches is not real. Look closely.

I love these turkeys. 
It looks like they were hit in the head with a cartoon hammer. 
(I had to google that picture because you can't quit make out the bump on  mine.)

We had to push the kids aside to get this picture. 
We tried to wait for our turn, but the other kids weren't playing by that rule. I blame their parents.

Oh Jorge, you are hilarious!

We used to have guineas on our farm growing up. They're better than any watchdog.

Jorge,

you are truelly awesome...

Lianne said...

Those aren't turkeys--they are Guinea Hens. And they are pure evil. EVIL!!! (

(They stalked me to the carousel last time I took my kids to the zoo. They also run from my parents' neighbor's farm every time I go visit. I hate those things.)

Rachel said...

Your life is awesome!!!!! (love the last pic by the way)

The Empty Envelope said...

LOL! Zoos are more fun for 'grown ups' than they are for kids. Official stance of mine. Thanks for sharing.:)

Christina Bauer said...

OMG I love that last picture! You're a kid at heart, aren't you Jorge? Oh, you always make me laugh! Thanks!

Avinash said...

I sat at the rabbit on the left. Look at my profile picture :D

Hepzibah said...

Way cool, Jorge, but I never did figure out which branch wasn't real!

Pam said...

Ah, I love the Central Park zoo. Hilarious photo there at the end.

Julie said...

I still have not had a chance to go to the zoo on any of my trips. Looks like fun.. Next time I guess!

Petra said...

Lack of common decency makes me crazy. Why can't people TEACH THEIR CHILDREN that they are NOT the center of the universe? Why can't parents set an example that we should all be wary of how our actions affect others? Why is that so hard?

Sorry, rant over. It is harder to be good parents when there are SO MANY bad ones out there!

*sigh*

: ) P

Jules said...

Um. I'm concerned that I can't see the difference in the sticks. Where's the creature?

Sarah said...

Love the bunnies! Yes, blame the parents. I'm a mum of three and they try to be polite, but it's a push and shove generation dammit!

Hmmm. From polar bears to rabbits. Why does that make me think of a tv show you're on? Hmmmm.

Well, apart from the zoo visit I just want to say You are my most favorite actor on Lost. I am a pakistani in Pakistan so you should know that you have fans all around the world :)

Maggie said...

I had to take a picture in the Children's Zoo too!

Geniales fotos, me encantan!!

We have guineas all over the place here in Arkansas. You can often find them blocking the middle of the street on any given day during the summer. We had some growing up and I couldn't stand them! They make a terrible noise over and over until they drive you up the wall! But they do eat ticks, so that's the good thing about having them.

Wow, does this comment make me sound like as much of a hick as I feel like it does?

Ezawyn said...

Polar bears, withe rabbits... Are you sure it´s only coincidence? haha! just kidding!

Chelle said...

your turkeys are guineas! i grew up outside of town w/plenty of land and my parents have had them running around the yard ever since i can remember! they come in pearl (like you saw), solid white, and gray. they all have the bump on their head though!

Joanne Casey said...

Those turkeys look like headed stones. My local zoo (Belfast) has great attractions like the pig ridin' pony

nollyposh said...

Lol! Yes the kid in us is never far away X:-)

James Hamlet said...

Hey c´mon dude, what the heck are you waiting to start working again? don´t you see we are thousands waiting for season 6? Stop lazying around and back to work¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

Greetings from South Spain, colega¡¡¡¡ :)

~Karen~ said...

I am so glad you all had fun in NYC. I have not been to that zoo in a very long time.
Of course, I love the bunny photo. You guys look like kids playing pretend. lol

I see a lot of "the lack of courtesy" from kids. It saddens me.(And yes, blame the parents)

Let me know if you guys make your way to Disney World. I think you'd enjoy the search for all the "hidden Mickey's" around the parks.
We make a game out of it. Have you done this before?

redelf said...

Those weird rabbit animals scare me.

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

Turkey's? They look more like pea hens to me. Of course I'm blind as a bat, they may be Hurley birds for all I know!

Sarah said...

PPs correct, that's a guinea (a.k.a. guinea fowl). I grew up on 120 acre farm and we always had guineas around. I'm not sure what good they are, other than being great "watchdogs" (they make a racket when cars approach or when animals chase them), plus I think they eat fleas.

They roosted in our pine trees in our front yard. I have fond memories of them hollering "pot-rack!".

Vanessa said...

Ha! I have that same bunny picture from the Central Park Zoo! I would post it if I knew how to do that sort of thing! Stay cool!

patcat59 said...

Jorge,

Love your blog-you are awesome!

Stacey B said...

I once went to the Bronx Zoo and when I was in the reptile space there were these two older straight out of Jersey women. Suddenly one of them hollers out "Oh my god...there's a frog in there with that snake...what if he eats him" in the strongest Jersey/New Yorker accent I have ever heard in my life. It was HILARIOUS!

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.
