As usual, Rollo and Otto Bear were foraging.


This “nubbin” view of Rollo shows how much he is growing. Bears carry weight in their hind end.


Otto walks around the edge of the pool. Bears drink lots of water during hyperphagia.

Apollo was eating his food and moving around in his pen.


Apollo is eating well.

Curator David saw him interacting with Charley Bear.  This was the first time he was observed actually interacting.  David snapped a photo, but it’s a bit blurry.
