Grizzly Bear

This Grizzly found a way to keep cool, on a HOT summer day. It was fun to watch as the bear paced back and forth along the water's edge (just getting his feet wet). I figured when he was ready he would simply walk down into the pool. All of a sudden, he lept into the air above the water - (picture Superman in flight) and as quickly as he entered the air, he splashed down "belly buster" style. It was quite entertaining to see the bear in mid air with arms and legs outstretched. I don't know about the other hot and sweaty spectators, but I couldn't help imagining how nice it would be to dive in with him. He looked so friendly, just like a big ol' teddy bear. There are two Grizzly's in this exhibit, I'll show you the other one tomorrow. They have a very nice "Bear home" at the Sedgwick County Zoo. It closely resembles a natural habitat.

That must have been some sight. Everyone needsto be cool.
It was 105F at our house today. I could have used the pool with that teddy bear...

He looks as if he's saying to himself, "This is just devine, Wendy, why don't you come in too?"

Very nice photo. We don't have grizzly bears but we do have a lot of black bears in Northern Ontario...they are fun to look at in the zoo...not very fun to discover them between you and the door to your house (very scary).

DON'T go into the water to swim with this bear, Nice shot but sooooooooo dangerous like a woolf in sheepclothes...

Thanks for dropping by my P.A.D. Your photos are lovely and really like the one in your header. I visited our local zoo a few weeks ago and didn't see any bears at all.

He looks so cute. :-)

But it probably won't make a good pet.
