Watermelon

July 20, 2009 | Larry Boles

We have been dealing with a lot of watermelons in the animal department lately. They are truly multipurpose berries. They are great food for bears and a great way to welcome back a coworker from vacation.

Sherry and I noticed some evidence of watermelon consumption in the bear house the other day.

The bears obviously coordinated their defecations in order to teach us a lesson about how plant pigments are processed in the digestive tract.
