Name that bear and what is stuck on its fur!
The limerick quiz is here, if you want to read it before seeing the answer below
Our knives, of course!!
We keep our knives safely tucked away in pockets or our backpacks, but they come in quite handy for routine things like cutting open a bag of chow or cutting bale strings off hay.
Sherry’s Christmas 2013 post got me thinking (or rhyming?). It’s been a while since I wrote a poem!
On that note, a limerick quiz to get you thinking:
Our tools are eclectic and many
but one keepers love more than any.
A little different are all;
some large and some small.
This is one tool we have in plenty.
It’s a bit of a tough guess, but give it a try!
Sunny, quiet mornings are always the best time, in my opinion, to call in the bears and go scoop poop in the bear yard. This past week, Volunteer Colet and Human Resources Lady, Maureen, put on their grubby sneakers and went in with me.
It only takes about an hour to finish scooping and scatter the day’s food around the exhibit. Sometimes, though, we find cool surprises!
Meanwhile, in the bear house:
Once we’re done scooping and let bears back onto exhibit, it’s always worth hanging around for a few minutes to see what the bears do. This time of year, it can be a bit harder to tell the bears apart if you’re not looking at them head-on. All of the bears have shed out their summer “highlights” and are packing on the pounds for the winter.
We had a lot of fun yesterday at Watermelon Day 2013!. Check out the local media for photos of the event. Can you name the two bears eating watermelons in the photos below? (I tried to make it harder this time).
The Keepers and Interns walked in to find the following on the dry erase board. Any ideas?
Some knew exactly what it was, while others (Jamie in particular) seemed a bit concerned. And, after I updated it, it looked like this:
I often draw on the boards and my skill at drawing is limited at best. See another drawing of mine.
#1: Name the pigs ( easy?)
#2: Whose arm is in the first photo (also fairly easy)
#3: What two items are being fed to the pig
Need a clue as to the food? If so, continue reading. If not, stop right here.
The two foods are holiday/festival related, although the holidays are unrelated to each other. Think Halloween and Pesach (Passover).
