So far, Spring has provided us with some very crazy weather. One day it is 70 degrees with a nice breeze then a cold and rainy day the next. Mid-march brought us some icy conditions then recently we had a hail storm pass through.
We make sure that we are constantly looking at the weather so that we can make sure to prepare the animal areas for whatever weather that is coming our way. Which includes keeping heat lamps up at lemurs for the extra cold nights to providing the bears with ice treats when it gets really hot.
But when it is really nice, the bears take advantage of the situation by finding a nice spot to sun.
