Grizzly wrestling

It's not all fun and games at Woodland Park Zoo. Sometimes there's drama!

Behold the clash of the grizzly titans... (turn the sound up for maximum effect)



The snow was purposefully added into the exhibit as enrichment for the bears. Introducing novel objects and materials (which can be anything from smells to food and even toys) or making a change to their habitat kicks the bears’ natural instincts into high gear and keeps them mentally and physically stimulated.

What other kinds of enrichment for the animals have you noticed around the zoo?
