As mentioned in other posts, the Polar Bears are a big part of the Journey to Churchill exhibit at the Assiniboine Park Zoo. Right beside the Polar Bears live one of their favourite foods – Seals – specifically Harbour Seals.
While I was at the zoo on Friday, one of the Polar Bears was at the window to the Seal pool, watching the little guys swimming and having fun. I am pretty sure the Seals know they are safe and were teasing the Bear, much like the squirrels in my back yard tease Chester.
Here are some pictures that I took on Friday. I think the Bear might be Hudson. There was only one in the water at this time.
At least one of the Seals loves to interact with people and will follow a hand around in circles or lines or figure 8s for as long as anyone wants to keep their hand on the glass. The children love this. 🙂 Actually, the adults love it too.
