Big changes are about to take place at ABR.  Otto Bear has had the entire Cub House – both rooms – to himself, but that’s about to change.  Rollo Bear is going to move in with Otto and the curators are preparing to receive him.  Ever alert, Otto is curious about the proceedings.

Otto in Room 2 of The Cub House. What’s going on in Room 1?

The curator finished cleaning Room 1 and Otto returned when the door was opened.

Otto goes back into Room 1 and, as always, notices changes that were made.

Otto

He has to investigate everything.

The door was left open, and Otto went back to Room 2 to eat.

We can say this for Otto – he has a great appetite!

Otto doesn’t know it, but he is about to get a roommate!

In the Cub Nursery, Rollo is showing signs of stress about his confinement.  He was in the wild until he was rescued, and does not like being housed in the small pen.

Rollo climbs the walls, literally, of his pen.

Rollo

He does not look like a happy cub!

He lets the curator know of his displeasure by huffing and blowing like a big bear.

Rollo

If we understood bear, we’d probably hear him say, “let me out!”

Our last post was a video in which Rollo was vocalizing loudly.  We hope you looked at it, because if you did you can imagine the sound Rollo is making.  Rollo will be moving in with Otto and it will be very interesting to see how each of them reacts to the other.  Stay tuned!
