Boy! this stuff is good!

The cubs are gaining lots of weight as they are learning to eat peanuts.   This will lead them to eating acorns and hickory nuts later in the fall.

In Aug. or Sept. bears go into a feeding frenzy called “hyperphagia”.
They can eat 20,000 calories a day and want to gain as much weight as possible before they hibernate.  In other words, bear are programed to eat lots of food.
