The four cubs are busy in the Wild Enclosure, and we’ve seen them foraging, eating, and playing with each other.  Here is a video that shows them playing up in the trees and on the ground.  They are at home in either place, although to us, the treetop sparring looks a bit precarious.  Check it out – get your chuckle for the day!

You will see that they have reached a milestone – they are 6 months old!  Of course, we don’t know their exact birth dates, but since we know that black bear cubs are born in late January to early February, our curators have chosen January 24 as their assumed birthday.  This makes them 6 months old now.  Their size is appropriate for their age.
