On July 10 we went to the Bronx Zoo to examine biodiversity on a larger scale. While there, we toured the new Congo Exhibit featuring the gorillas (above, left). With most of the primates, the public was separated from the animals by glass panes, so up close observations were possible. The sea lions were one of my favorite exhibits. They seemed to enjoy putting on a show for the crowd and would climb on the rocks for photo opportunities.
I also enjoyed the baboons (above, left). We sat and watched a young baboon groom one of its elders. They were only about 2 feet away from us, but separated by a pane of glass. Another of my favorite exhibits was the snow leopards (above, center). This spring, four baby snow leopards were born at the Bronx Zoo. They were adorable -- climbing all over one another and wrestling on the rocks. The one pictured above would look out at us and snarl. He thought he was so ferocious.
