A Peacock!

For those of you who guessed a bird, you were right! All over the Staten Island zoo there were peacocks roaming freely. It was so cool! They are such gorgeous animals. I really loved the fact that these animals were not in cages and could walk where they pleased. We even saw one hanging inside the kangaroo pen!

These birds are also quite large!! I kept thinking, I wonder if Dante would be afraid of this bird?

The coloring on these birds are amazing. I was hoping that this fella would open up his feathers so we could see him in all his glory. But he didn't.

We would never have guessed. We think he is too big for us to catch though.
