If it seems that every post shows the cubs eating, it’s because the only time the curators can see and photograph the bears is when they go down to the Acclimation Pen to clean the pen and put out food.  And it goes without saying that when food is put out, the cubs are eating.  Today we have a little drama in photos that is really quite funny.  We hope you enjoy it.

Rollo and Otto eat peaceably, side-by-side.

What we find so amusing in this little story is that Rollo never stops eating, even when Otto attempts to get at his food.  He makes his feelings known emphatically, and the larger cub gets the message.
