These photos show the first meeting of the two, tiny cubs (no, they are actually YEARLINGS now, as they were born in January, 2011) who were admitted to ABR on Friday.

You can see the natural defense reaction, shown by their posture.  Can you hear the “huffing” sounds they are making as they face each other for the first time?

The good news is that within a couple of days they snuggled together as “best buds.”

We’ll post photos of these 2  new friends as soon as we receive them.
