Thanks for the congrats. This isn't just an old LOL but a recycled FP. This I do not care for at all. There are so many great LOLs daily that there is no need to recycle old FPs, and it's not fair to the folks creating those great new LOLs either. (I received no notification from ICHC about this old FP either.)
I am SO embarrassed to say that I haven't been able to watch the eagle dvd yet but you would never believe just how hard I have been trying! Since I got rid of cable, I can't get my dvd players to work!!!!!! I gave up on the one in my bedroom (I can't even find the remote but tried the "old fashioned" way by pushing the buttons! I used to use the living room one for movies and even had the instructions written down but they are meaningless without cable. I am going to have Laurie help me pull out my pc next week and I should be able to find the tray to put a disc in. If not, I am going to ask Laurie or my only other "friend" if we can watch it at their houses. Laurie will help me with absolutely ANYTHING I need but she's even worse with technology than I am, if you can believe that! I am teaching her how to use her gmail account so that should tell you the extent of our combined knowledge! I obviously refuse to give up!
No one knows why all males. Even the chief state biologist for bears hasn't a clue. In the bear world births are pretty much one to one as to male and female. This has never happened at the Center before. We all know more bears will come in, and everyone is wondering if the all male situation will continue. The ladies have joked that the females are smarter and ask for directions and find mom again. However, there was a great male response. He said that the females are out foraging for food and clean water while these males have everything they need and play all the time, so who is smarter? We had no answer. LOL
The cubs are little because they are about six weeks old, but the three who came in first have visibly grown. They are all weighed regularly and all have gained weight since their arrival. It would, of course, be best if they were all with their moms, but I do love watching them. They grow quickly and will probably be put into the huge enclosure with the actual trees and a huge bathing pool in early June. Thanks for adding the link to the cams LOL.
Cam 2 (there are 3 cams, but the bears are on #2. Go here to select a cam: http://wildlifecenter.org/critter-corner/critter-cam-landing Under the cam choices there is a list of what may be seen on that cam, and they may change which critter is online during the day. However, the cam on the bears stays on the bears (I miss the cute little squirrels) because they are so popular as a viewing attraction.
