I don't think any of us can complain about the weather this past week. I know the animals of IEAS are sure having some fun. The bears are enjoying their pond and water tubs, especially the cubs. Visitors beware as the area around their water tubs becomes a splash zone! They have so much fun rough housing in them. The grizzlies are in their pool at least once a day...if not all day! And if you are anywhere near their pool while they are playing...you will get wet!
Our tigers, of course, are having a blast in their pools. Even the older tigers still enjoy splashing around every now and then. Our two new resident tigers wasted no time cooling off in their pool. They both love to cool off during the early morning hours and late evening hours. They tend to want their privacy while they are enjoying a relaxing dip. The male tiger had just gotten out of his pool when one of the keepers came over for a visit. He came right over to the fence and greeted her with a chuff. So we are happy to see these two tigers and the cougars warming up to not only their human caregivers, but their animal neighbors as well.
If you would like to see a good show, now is the time to visit these wonderful animals. The weather couldn't be more perfect, and the animals are ready to make a splash!
