Wild Enclosure #4, where Boudreaux, Beignet, and Jessamine will spend the winter, has many potential den sites. Some of them are being tried on for size or comfort, as the cubs try to decide where to sleep.

Beignet fits in this den. Will Jessamine fit? Or is she too big?

Jessamine wandered into the Acclimation Pen. She found an empty food bowl there. If you recall, the curators have stopped putting food in this pen.

Jessamine looks at the food bowl.
No food there, so she decides to try it on for size. Maybe it would make a good bed.
It looks like it’s a bit of a tight fit, doesn’t it?
Where there’s a will there’s a way – Jessamine squeezes into the bowl.

We are fairly certain that this will not be her final choice for a bed for the winter. Maybe she’ll climb up on the straw-covered platform, or maybe she’ll choose another den. We’ll have to wait and see.
