When you arrive at the Central Park Zoo, located within the pristine 843-acre park, don’t expect the cast of the animated movie “Madagascar” to greet you — there are no zebras, lions or giraffes. However, you can expect a menagerie of other characters, including polar bears, snow leopards, red pandas and emerald tree boas. If you go, be sure to catch the adorable Gentoo penguins during their 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. daily feedings. Trust us, they’re much nicer than the penguins in the movie.
