  • Staten Island Zoo 
    The Staten Island Zoo might not be the largest or most exotic zoo around (its nickname is the "biggest little zoo"), but it is highly educational and acclaimed for its Reptile Wing, or "Serpentarium," which houses an extensive collection of rattlesnakes. The zoo also cares for many warm-blooded creatures, with hundreds of species represented, and is the home of Charles G. Hogg, aka Staten Island Chuck—New York City's sometimes irascible groundhog-meteorologist, who predicts the length of winter, often with the help of the City's mayor, every February 2.
