As we have seen recently, the cubs seem to be taking turns being “front and center” during the curators’ observation time.  This time it was Finnegan who showed himself during suppertime.  We can see that his intensive eating is paying off in obvious weight gain.  He is a chubby cubby, for sure!


It appears that Finnegan is pondering the food choices.

Shifting position, he goes on eating … and eating some more.

It’s hard to remember that he was under 3 pounds when he first came to ABR.  Six months have made a tremendous difference in his size.  He will keep eating until his body signals him to stop when he has reached a good weight to survive the winter without food.  Bears are amazing!
