For those of you who guessed Emu in the last post, you were right! Emus are like ostriches but they are smaller and they have 3 toes, whereas ostrich has 2 toes.
Here is another cool animal we saw at the Staten Island zoo. I can't for the life of me remember the name of this big fella.
We were lucky because the staff was doing a presentation with some of the animals and we were able to pet this guy. His skin was super cool. I was surprised how docile this lizard was, it had claws, but he did not scratch at anyone. He also has a forked tongue, just like snakes. Neat!
