Things in the Cub Nursery are pretty lively since the two cubs, Sugar Bear and Sweet Pea Bear are together.  Curator Coy captured these images of the cubs and their activities.

Sugar and Sweet Pea

Sugar and Sweet Pea are ready to eat.

Sweet Pea eats the “cubby porridge.”

One cub drinks

Sugar Bear drinks formula.

Curator Coy examines the cubs’ scat, to see if they are eating some of everything.  Bear scat is very revealing of what a bear has had to eat.  Because they do not digest food very well, it’s easy to tell what has been eaten.  Though it may gross some of us out, it is part of the scientific study.

After eating – Eww! Cub Scat!

After a meal, it’s time for rest.

Sweet Pea relaxes in the bed.  She gives a big yawn.

Rest is good.

A few minutes later, it’s time for play again – a cubby rumble starts.

Time for play again!
