Polar Bear exhibit at Brno, 27/05/10

A very odd, steep exhibit. One bear was stereotyping quite a bit in the morning, but when we returned they were both looking a lot more relaxed. Only goes to show how cautious you should be about judging animals on one visit to the enclosure. (when we wnet back, one of the bears was having great fun tossing and pouncing on an enrichment device consisting of just two sticks tied together - a great example of value-for-money enrichment). That said, it\'s hard to imagine the bears using the whole area of this exhibit due to the gradient. The pool is actually pretty deep from watching the bear playing, and there is a small area of ice in one corner. Very odd.
