Hubby's Ultimate Sacrifice - Post 3 - Prospect Park Zoo - Brooklyn NY

I so loved the Prospect Park Zoo.  It's quite a small zoo - only about 12 acres.  You can just feel the happiness of the animals there and I have to say this is one of my favorite zoos I have been to.

You are greeted by this happy pair when you enter.  It's great - you walk up to the railing to see what's there and these guys hop up on the wall to say hello:

There is a neat sculpture garden as well:
And of course - lots of cute critters:

We also had quite the treat - adorable baby baboons that were on display for the first time the week we were there.  They were funny because they could see us and it scared them because they didn't realize there was glass between us and them.  So cute...  Check out the video - it has the babies as well as some otters, the red panda and the sea lions getting fed and performing some tricks.
