Now that both trios of cubs are together in the Wild Enclosure, it is interesting to see how their relationships develop.  So far, there haven’t been any strong disagreements.  Of course, the fact that there is plenty of food for all of them helps.  No need for arguments.

Bosco and Viola were resting on the platform.

Trio 1 foraged in one area.

In another area, the cubs of Trio 2 are focused on their eating.

They concentrate more on their foraging than do the cubs of Trio 1.

But wait! Viola comes to join the cubs of Trio 2.

The pear won’t last long. Tumble gobbles it down.

We’ll be watching as these cub relationships continue to shift and change.

Magnolia Bear comes out of hiding.

The yearlings are much less visible than the cubs, so it’s good to see Magnolia Bear out and about. Bumble did not make an appearance.
