      The zoo has a pair of old bear grottoes that can actually be joined to make one large exhibit, and the enclosures are much more spacious and naturalistic than many similar bear habitats. There is a lot of deadfall, shade and enrichment for the andean bear(s).

      I think these grottoes used to be the Sloth Bear exhibits before the zoo built Asia Trail.

      No, Im pretty sure the Sloth Bear were kept in the older bear grottos on the hillside below the gibbons and above the pinnipeds.

      Oh, I thought this was where they were at. Thanks for the correction.

      Actually I think it was this exhibit that the Sloth Bears used to be in.
