let the exploration begin!
On May 8th our two Grizzly Bears, Grinder and Coola, entered their large summer habitat earlier than previous seasons. The bears, awake and out of hibernation since April 21st, welcomed the opportunity to explore their familiar habitat and to play in the large mounds of snow that are still present.
The new habitat includes multiple ponds, a stream system, forested areas, hills and open fields - a lot of areas to explore!
As expected, Grinder entered first but was very quickly followed by Coola. Grinder is the more explorative of the bears whereas Coola watches Grinder and then, if it all looks good, follows on his heels.
