We told you that the curators were giving Noli a “test” to see if she could climb, because she hadn’t displayed that crucial skill so far. Today we see that she passed with flying colors – yes, she climbs up and down as easily as any bear cub. Here are some pictures to show the results of her testing.
Food is a powerful motivator for a hungry cub. She showed that she can climb up to get the grapes and then climb back down.
Meanwhile, our yearling Woody Bear made a brief appearance so that the curator could snap his photo! This shows how far he was from the curator.
The next two show him through the zoom lens.
We expect that Woody will leave ABR soon to return to the wild. He is behaving just like a wild bear should.
