In our last post we told you that Rollo and Otto Bear had been lured into an Acclimation Pen for the duration of Hurricane Irma that was forecast to pay us a visit. Fortunately the visit was very brief and did not do the damage that might have resulted. So the door to the Wild Enclosure was opened again and the cubs were back in the enclosure.
White oak acorns are the favorites of bears and many other wildlife species. Otto and Rollo are fortunate to have a white oak tree in their enclosure. Of course, the curators provide additional acorns, but the tree in the enclosure gives the cubs the experience of climbing a tree to eat as they will do in the wild.
