Snow Monkey Hot Tub – Central Park Zoo

Central Park Zoo Snow Monkeys enjoy their “Hot Tub”, much as they do the volcanic baths that keep them warm in their native Japan.

Ready For My Closeup – Central Park, Winter 2015

Central Park Grizzlies Debut at the Zoo

Betty and Veronica, the Central Park Zoo’s newest inhabitants make their official debut today.  They’ve been busy  exploring all the nooks and crannies of their new home, a radically redesigned enclosure that once housed Gus, the Zoo’s beloved polar bear who died in 2013.  Visitors who were accustomed to Gus’s endless lap swimming — the aquatic equivalent of pacing — are in for a treat. These bears are social, engaged and, considering that it’s winter, pretty active, in a lumbering sort of way.

Central Park Zoo’s snow leopard cub enjoys its first snow day

Despite frigid temperatures Central Park Zoo’s adorable snow leopard cub, 6-month-old Malala, ­enjoyed the light dusting of snow that blanketed Manhattan.   She and her mother were among many Gotham dwellers who were in awe of the picturesque powder that hit the East Coast Tuesday, marking the first snowfall of 2015.  But the beauty of the fluffy flakes will  fade for New Yorkers thanks to the icy winter winds. New Yorkers should prepare to bundle up as temps are expected to stay below 25 degrees with the possibility of snow through Saturday.  Today is expected to be the coldest one this week, with weathermen predicting a high of only24 degrees.
