Close encounter with polar bears
Here's one of the polar bears basking in the sun.
Good trip overall. Had a close encounter with the polar bears from Seaworld. I took a Behind the scenes tour and pretty much got face to face with Hudson and Nelson. The only thing separating me from them was a wire mesh. How many people can say that they almost got licked by a couple of polar bears? Their long black tongue almost hit my nose a couple of times, through the wire mesh.
Here's Hudson and Nelson play fighting - their most favourite activity.
Playing with a red recycling bin and an orange buoy. The keepers are always placing new toys and puzzles in the enclosure to stimulate the bears.
It's a tough life being a polar bear at Seaworld. You eat and sleep, play with new toys, and lay in the sun all day long.
