Curator Janet reported that she observed the three bear cubs playing in a much slower  manner than usual.  She said they were lying on their backs with feet in the air, swatting lazily at each other.  Unfortunately we don’t have photos of this – it would be most interesting to see.  Instead, she got photos of the cubs at their favorite activity – eating.

Rollo - Otto

Otto is in front of Rollo. Both are busy munching acorns.


Rollo settles down to crunch. We can almost hear the crunching sounds.


Apollo comes out to join the foraging party.

It seems that the bears are getting bigger with each passing day.  They are certainly doing their part to prepare for winter.
