The two brothers, Tamale and Burrito Bear, went to UTCVM for their intake exams. They seem to be very healthy little cubs.

Tamale is prepared for his X-ray.

Tamale has needle-sharp baby teeth!

The feisty cubs were sedated, so they got their ear tags.

They are cute, but they’re not teddy bears!

Sedation was necessary for the feisty little guys!

Look at the claws on this little paw!

Another set of sharp teeth!

Curator Bailey places the cubs in next-door pens. They must be separated while they take their deworming meds.

The third resident of The Cub Nursery is Doodlebug. She is eating well. We are hoping for the best while waiting for test results.
