Our three remaining cubs, the “Flower Girls,” are busy foraging for food to increase their weight and prepare them for hibernation after they are released.  As you can see from these photos, they are packing on the pounds and look much chubbier than when they first arrived.  You will also see in these images that they aren’t limiting their eating to the tasty foods provided by the curators.  When they find something on their own, they are very happy (and so are we, since it shows that they won’t be dependent on ABR for food).
