Ursus americanus pallas - American Black Bear

$75.00 per month



This little bear came to the Zoo after the Wildlife Department received a call about a "bear in a bathtub". He was most likely born in February 2004, but for unknown reasons he weighed only 20 pounds in February 2005. Oso, which means bear in Spanish, was sick upon arrival, but his health has steadily improved.  He is on an enriched diet and is gaining weight. (Director's note: he received his name, Oso-Much-Trouble, because like all bears he is cunning and mischievous.)
