The Golden Lion Tamarin may be the most beautiful of the four Lion Tamarin species, with thick rings of hair reminiscent of Africa's great cats.

In 1987 while working as a staff photographer at the now defunct Tampa Tribune, I latched on to one of those long term projects that become a passion and change your life.

The old style Zoo for the City of Tampa had announced it was becoming the new style Lowry Park Zoo Association with state of the art natural habitats for all the animals. It was like a dream come true for a photographer. I immediately made contact with the management of the zoo and made my pitch to document every aspect of the conversion, from its building to its opening.

Over the next year, I spent every minute I could find at the zoo, getting to know the staff and the animals as my friends. It was a magical time. The more time you spent with the animals, the more you learned that they were just like us. They each had unique personalities. They definitely had their likes and dislikes. 

Lowry Park Zoo opened on March 5, 1988, with a Free-Flight Aviary, Asian Domain, Primate World and the Children’s Village/Petting Zoo.
