We have a few more photos today, and the good news is that Finnegan and Eliza were in the same tree with no huffing, slapping, or other signs of stress.  First, we see Finnegan high in the branches of a tree.  Very high!  The curators had never seen him go quite so high before.

Finn climbed very high in this tree!

Eliza Bear climbed up the same tree.

Finnegan climbed down on the tree, getting close to Eliza.

The two cubs are close together on opposite sides of the tree.

Neither of the cubs made threatening or angry moves.

This was a good sign. The two cubs were tolerant of each other.

Finn continued to climb down and went off to forage.

Eliza watched as Finn climbed down the tree.

Every encounter between the cubs that is not accompanied by huffing, clacking and swatting is considered by the curators as a step in the right direction.  It is vitally important for Finnegan, especially, to associate with these other two members of his species.  We hope the trend continues.
