Just tuned back into the bear center site in Minneapolis figuring my bears would surely be out of hibernation by now. Imagine my surprise when a huge black bear wandered in front of the camera. I frowned wondering how it could be possible that Ted grew all his hair back and looked so young this year – then it hit me, that was Lucky I was watching.
Talk about a major difference in appearance from one year to the next! Last year he was rather scrawny and looked the part of the bear cub – today he is huge both in size and breadth. So beautiful! What a good-looking bear!
I’ve started watching my web cams again after being absent for a month or so. I would check in but didn’t put them on regularly because it seemed like the lion cubs never grew. I figured a bit of an absence would change my perspective and boy did it! They are also quite grown! I expected that but I didn’t even think about Lucky getting so big. Wow, I’m amazed.
Am I a bit strange for wanting to go hug the polar bears? They look like they could use a good hug. I bet their fur is soft. I suppose it would give new meaning to “bear hug”.
