Andean Bear Cubs' Birthday Bash
Earlier this month the National Zoo's Andean bear cubs celebrated their birthday. The zoo keepers placed some of their enrichment gifts out in the open and some up in trees. The twin bears appeared to have a great time tearing into their gifts (which included a giant phone book to peruse and shred) and it was a joy to watch them. My husband and I took these photos but we aren't sure who took which as we were passing the camera back and forth while enjoying the brother and sister bear cubs' birthday celebration. I hope these photos make you smile. May God bless you!
Note: According to signs at the zoo, the Andean bear cubs (also called spectacled bears) are only on view on weekends so if you want to see them I'd recommend visiting on Saturday or Sunday.
