Bears are Falling Asleep

The first winter month sent us a "present" of unexpectedly warm weather. It affected the behaviour of some of our animals, Brown Pears and Himalayan Bears who usually prepare for hibernation period in the middle of December. Almost all December was spent outside waiting for cool weather. It is only now, in the beginning of January, that thery are going to sleep.

 

 

 Pregnant females are generally the first to lie in their dens for sleep; they are followed by females with one-year-old cubs; adult males are the last ones to go to sleep. Awakening process goes in the reverse order; males are first to leave their den; females with cubs go out the last.
