Pictures from the Father/Son Zoo Trip

Last Sunday’s funny animals picture went over really well.  I realized that I randomly put it on the same day that my son and I went to the Bronx Zoo.  That was a lot of fun and we got some really good pictures.  Sadly, the tigers didn’t want to come out and you can’t hang around certain areas like you used to.  We are pretty quickly forced out of the viewing area by the crowd.  Anyway, here are some good ones:

Baby bison in a winter coat

Bleeding Heart Pigeon

Hornbill

Dhole (My son’s favorite and we got to watch them play for a while.)

Peacock that got right next to me. Sadly, a bunch of kids chased the poor thing away soon after the picture.

Chinchilla (They’re usually asleep)

Giraffe having a snack

Gibbon (These guys don’t come out very often.)

Leopard (Took so long to get this picture because a guy kept running back and forth to taunt the poor thing. I was so tempted to trip him.)

Lion (This one and the third male that they had inside were arguing when we arrived.)

Brown bear (Every other picture I took was nothing, but bear butt. My son found that hilarious.)

Dwarf caiman (New face at the reptile house.)

Baby alligator (First time seeing one moving around near the glass.)

White Rhino having a snack

Komodo Dragon (Eyeing all the tasty children.)

Fossa (Another animal that we’d rarely seen awake. Only one time before and it didn’t give us any good picture opportunities.)

Little penguins (That’s really their name.)

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. Great photos, Charles – little kids getting excited seeing the animals, I can understand, but bigger kids and ‘adults’ taunting the animals makes me angry 😡

  2. Beautiful photos, Charles. I have never seen a bleeding heart pigeon. I loved your caption on the dragon shot. It sounds like a few parents ought to be eaten. Thanks for the treat.

  3. I love visiting the zoo. I haven’t been for a couple of years, and there is something new I would like to see. I feel sorry for the bear. He should be hibernating about now.

    Wow, those are great! And now I’m thinking of the animals you come up with based on made up words. I hope this trip was also inspiring for you as you consider other creatures to populate your fantasy world.
