Alaska Zoo Curator Shannon Jensen and Polar Bear Zookeeper Beth Foglesong spent their second day at the Denver Zoo with polar bear staff and Cranbeary. As the time draws near for Cranbeary’s flight north to her Alaska Zoo home, Shannon and Beth are learning all they can about her preferences and habits.
Here are some images taken by Shannon today, along with captions:
We will continue to provide updates on Cranbeary and our Alaska Zoo staff in Denver. Curator Shannon Jensen said “We learned so much more about Cranbeary today and enjoyed spending quality time with her Denver Zoo family”. More to come soon!
