We're back with another edition of Where in the World is Yasiel Puig?

When last we saw him, Yasiel had discovered the wonders of snow. Today, we find our hero taking a trip to the Cincinnati Zoo, with Los Angeles in midst of a series with the Reds. The second oldest zoo in the United States, the Cincy attraction was founded in 1875 and contains an expansive collection of animals, all on display for Yasiel to look at.

Earlier, the Dodgers outfielder hung out with a snake. He got his inner Dr. Doolittle on.


Puig also made friends with this elephant.


Then he saw some polar bears, who didn't seem to realize the gravitas of the moment.


And a gorilla statue. Yasiel says it resembles teammate Juan Uribe.


Lovable sidekick Hyun-Jin Ryu came along as well. He apparently also hates snakes.
