Central Park Zoo

I visited the Central Park Zoo with a couple of friends. 
The star of this place is Gus a GINORMOUS polar bear.

He shares the enclosure with Ida who slept most of the time. 
By the way if you find yourself sleeping on a bar mat, you'll get more cushion if you fold it and double it up. 

I have no real proof, but I believe this is their toilet.

I went to a zoo recently, but the polar bear was hidden.

Your pictures are beautiful... did you use telephoto or something like that?

I ask 'cause if you want to see the animals in the pictures I took you need a magnifying glass...

Hey, it's just like that one thing that you are involved with!!

Hey, i think your silver dust from the previous post came from your shower curtain. my shower curtain at home does the same thing to me. the metal from the hooks rubs the metal curtain rod and leaves that dust on my hands.

this is not the place where they should be.
but they're cute and your pics are great !
but i cannot stop myself feeling sorry watching them in an environment that push them away from their very nature.

Requisite Dharma reference.

Those bears are HUGE! Polar bears are my favorite animal, but I wouldn't want to be too close to one of them.

Derek Brink said...

I'm guessing a lot of people tried to get you in their pictures of the bear, huh? Pfft...Lost-freaks...

...by the way, Lost is awesome. :)

Hepzibah said...

Adorable photos (well, not the toilet one)! And thanks for the advice about the bar mat!

Astrid said...

so sweet!

did you happen to notice if they were wearing Dharma collars?

Man said...

Perfect day to be in NYC it was beautiful, unless your a polar bear just wishing for a blizzard.

Thorny Tree Lady said...

Holy Freak! Those paws are bigger than my head!!!

Iberostar said...

I kinda miss the giant polar bear on the island, seeing those pics of the ones in the zoo. Of course, having the one on the show running toward me with fangs bared is a lot scarier.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Those photos are great! I sleep on a bar mat at home, and it's fabulous. ;)

I love the comment about the bar mat! What nice-looking polar bears! Hope you brought some fish biscuits with you!!!

Melissa said...

While visiting these same polar bears three years ago, one pooped in the stream that lead to the swimming area where the other one was swimming. A bunch of watchers got to witness poo in the face first hand, and floating poops everywhere in the water. We just sat there laughing as parents and kids were disgusted!

Wednes said...

I had no idea bears started using toilets!
So much for that old axiom about what bears do in the woods.

I wonder if the polar bears might like an iPod TP holder?
Seems to be the "it" gift this season...

The Empty Envelope said...

Awww...happy polar bears.

Sarah said...

OMGWTF POLAR BEAR!!!??? Really, I saw no one else had said that and it just had to be said.

CeeHubb said...

Kate: Where did that come from?

Sawyer: Probably Bear Village... How should I know?!

Kate: I meant the gun.

Avinash said...

I was at that zoo a couple of weeks ago when I visited America.

I really want to ride a polar bear. Not in the way you're thinking. I'd just pop on a cowboy hat and some leather boots and ride it. Not in the way you're thinking.

James Hamlet said...

They seem to be a little boring, perhaps not very well cares? or is it that it may be too hot for them in Manhattan?

Let me introduce you aa amazing Zoo we have here in Costa del Sol, is a must seen place http://www.zoofuengirola.com/eng/index.php

Ezawyn said...

Mmmmm... polar bears? Maybe the Island ones? That´s really funny ^_^

Awwwww, and Ida is sooooo cute!!!!

Jenea said...

In Hawaii was polar bear!?

cc said...

What great shots. I adore polar bears! Isn't Central Park great? So much to do and see in one place.

Enjoy your stay in New York.. Maybe get some tasty soul food BBQ at Brother Jimmy's or Sylvia's - yummmm.

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

You should visit northern Manitoba (Canada) where they have dozens of polar bears. Unfortunately unlikely Gus and Ida, the Manitoba Polar Bears are grouchy moochers.

Thieuthieu said...

Hi Jorge, it's my first post on your blog. I'm french.

Your pics of this bear are really good :) like yourself :D you are cute bear too hehe

Kristen said...

Aww, I just want to cuddle Gus. Probably not a recommended idea, though. :)

nollyposh said...

aims said...

My heart is still pounding.....

Tiffany Noélli said...

Wendyburd1 said...

Gus is gorgeous!! I'm sorry but I find it funny you focusing on the polar bear...hey what happened with those comic books anyway? That better be answered!LOL!

Michelle said...

No Dharma logo huh? Were there real polar bears on the Lost set?

steftur said...

Here is a good song about Gus...

I demand photo credit Jorge!! I'm kidding, but Gus is pretty awesome and I loved Ida's self-made pillow. Thanks for suffering through that Zoo with us, it was fun!

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.
