We wanted to add another post for today, and this photo of Tartan standing up and holding his leaf bouquet is a good one. To us he looks like he might be preparing for Mothers Day, but of course he has separated from his mom, so maybe the bouquet is for the curators who are caring for him. Actually, we think it is for his breakfast. In addition to the curator-provided foods, Tartan avails himself of all the naturally occurring bear foods – insects, leaves, and plants – in his enclosure. Whatever it is, we think this is a great picture of our yearling.

Tartan holding his “breakfast bouquet.”

We can’t help but notice that he is getting more plump from all the good food. Keep it up, Tartan, and you may reach the “chonky” stage!
