Metro Toronto Zoo opened the 10 acre Tundra Trek show casing a lot of arctic animals. So what “white” arctic animals are there? Well, there’s Polar Bear, Arctic Wolf, Arctic Fox, Snow Goose, and Snowy Owl. However only three of them are on display when I visited.
So this first post of the series and the featured “white” animal is Polar Bear. Toronto Zoo now has three polar bear. All of them were little cub that spent some time in the Toronto Zoo before. I have photo of them when they are just few months old. There are two female Aurora and Nikita. This pair of twin sisters were just little cubs then they first came to Toronto Zoo in 2001. You can see my photos of them in this posted titled ‘Polar bear cubs at the Toronto Zoo’. There’s also a male named Inukshuk who also came to Toronto as an orphan bear in 2003. You can see my photo of Inukshuk when he is just a little cub in this post titled ‘New polar bear cub in the zoo‘.
Out of water, Refreshing…
The bears like to play a lot. Here one of them won’t let the other chew on the tree peacefully, so soon it turned into a show down of Kung Fu polar bears.
Soon enough Kung Fu turned into Sumo wrestling instead.
Just a few more shot of the polar bears. Yes the very same bear, but sure looks brown now after a few roll in the mud. Is that a French kiss I see there? 😳
Bear playing fetch.
Bear hug. Bear roll. They are definitely playful.
No this is not brown bear. It’s still the same polar bear just very dirty with all the mud. Look at their size once they stand up.
