Took the boys to the Bronx zoo


Among the other pics I took, here are the ones that probably matter most to people around here!




The small guys are probably fry. They were about 3 inches long, for comparison. Huge fish.






Some of these guys were as big as my boys!




It was dark and crowded. Sorry about the flash, had to snap and go.


They all lined up for me!


There is a freakin huge catfish in there.

I took a bunch more of the other animals, if anyone is interested.
Thanks for looking!

Awesome pics, thanks for sharing.
My fav has to be the row on turtles on the log, heh.

There's an archer there, along with Scatophagus and Monodactyllis. (Sp.?)

That enclosure in Jungle World is, to my knowledge, one of very few - if not the only - place where Fly River turtles have been bred in captivity. (They simply discovered a new baby tooling around the tank one day . . . !)

Nice photos, Chocological - looking forward to my granddaughter's eyes when she visits that one for the first time! (She loves zoos, as I'm sure your lads do!)

If you go, spare no expense. Buy the full experience tickets. It really was worth it. My boys did not want to leave the children's zoo, and pretty much enjoyed all of the premium exhibits. The regular ones.. not so much.

I wish I took a video of it.. They all started climbing on one another and all fell into the water!

So do I. But I don't think I'd enjoy cleaning that thing.

Wow that is very cool. I wish the National Zoo was that cool. Also those little fish appear to be Rohani Barbs.

4th pic, I remember going there and seeing the out-of-place flagtail prochilodus in the otherwise Asian fish tank. Must've snuck in with the foil barbs.

Fly river turtles are cool. They got them to breed? Awesome!
