A buffet of delights
The large pond in the aptly named Lower Pond Habitat, contains many tasty delights for Grinder and Coola. Their favourites are the frog and salamander eggs located around the edges of the pond and attached to sticks. One of the first things the bears did upon entering Lower Pond was to go into the pond and start lifting up sticks to check for egg masses. Because of their late entry into this side of their summer habitat, however, many of the eggs had already hatched. The clusters they did find, however, did not last long before the bears feasted on them.
