Romp Around the Clock
June 03, 2010
The National Zoo's Andean Bear cubs have emerged to romp about for delighted Zoo visitors. The weather is perfect for these native South American cubs, born back in January, to begin exploring. Also called spectacled bears, in the wild these bears are typically docile and cautious when approached by humans, but will fiercely protect their cubs if threatened. Their colorings can vary greatly and some Andean Bears' heads are entirely cream colored.
