Our Names are Ivan and Nadia. We share an exhibit with a Syrian Brown Bear named Zaina at Living Treasures Laurel Highlands.
Here are some Fun Facts:
In summer through autumn, they can double its weight, gaining up to 180 kg (400 lb) of fat, on which it relies to make it through winter, when it becomes very lethargic.
Although they are not full hibernators and can be woken easily, both sexes like to den in a protected spot, such as a cave, crevice, or hollow log, during the winter months.
The Brown Bear is one of the most omnivorous animals in the world and has been recorded as consuming the greatest variety of foods of any bear.
Beyond the regular predation of salmon, most brown bears are not particularly active predators.
