We have some photos of the newest cubs – Juliette (#208) and Summer (#209).  They were taken from a distance, as all of the photos are, and so they aren’t recognizable.  They are doing what bear cubs do – hanging out in trees in their own Wild Enclosure.

Juliette or Summer

Juliette or Summer? We can’t tell which.

In the other Wild Enclosure, where the other five cubs are staying, we are able to recognize these photos of Noli Bear and Carter Bear.

Carter Bear

Carter still keeps to himself, not interacting with any of the other cubs.

Noli

Noli Bear likes being in a tree.

Noli has not made contact with any of the other cubs, either.  It may be that they will become pals after a while, or it may be that Noli and Carter are “loners.”  Bears live a pretty solitary life.  As a rule, the only groups you might see are a mother bear with her cubs or yearlings.

Noli is very comfortable, even standing in a tree.

We have to show you once again how far away the curator is when he or she photographs the cubs.  You can barely see a bear cub in the trees.

Curator's view

This was the curator’s view with the naked eye. We can hardly see a bear. Can you?
