Grizzly Bear

Brown bears in interior North America are known as grizzly bears, because their brown fur is tipped with white or tan; the word grizzly means sprinkled or streaked with gray.


Sun Bear

Endangered sun bears, named for the golden crescent on their chest, are extremely agile tree climbers and make excellent use of their enclosure’s climbing structures.


Snow Leopard

Snow leopards live in Asia at very high elevations, where there are steep cliffs. The wild goats and sheep they prey on are quite nimble at leaping from rock to rock—and so are snow leopards!
