  • Entered the site, there are many bears in the first place. Can be seen from quite near the cage, so I was surprised, and a little scary. You can buy food, throw, but see me! "And the necklace to appeal and obvious (laughs), but bear is pretty beast smell.

  • Bread is the monkey's head, but went to the popular public please people. Only from a distance we couldn't immediately bored children, has gone into other areas. And non-feeding the bears photo shoot with Spears and baby bear is Uke have made. Bears raise hand or pose you wish, hit the ground, to get food from a man did a great job. Like a little big Ranch location.
