We’ve said that the only job our cubs have to perform is to eat and grow chubby. They have really taken their job seriously, and as these photos show, the “chubbyfication” is coming along very well. Just like bears in the wild, the cubs have been in hyperphagia for several weeks, and as they eat and add weight they also become somewhat lethargic. They aren’t playing as often or as strenuously as they did just a few weeks ago.
Here are the cubs as they look now.
Finally, the yearling Magnolia Bear is seen on one of her daybeds.
As you can see, all the bears are doing well. They will be ready for release before too much longer.
