First run at #44

OK, it’s been a while since I have updated this blog; but fear not, the updates will start to come more regularly.

That said, a couple of months ago we had a late-season snowstorm followed by a nice sunny day, so I figured it would be a great time to run over to the Detroit Zoo and see what the polar bears were up to.

The Detroit Zoo is typical of many older zoos — it has lots of old-school exhibits that are slowly being replaced by newer ones.  One of the best new additions — truly a world-class exhibit — is the Arctic Ring of Life area that opened a few years ago. It’s the largest Polar Bear attraction in North America, and when it opened was the largest in the world. You can see arctic foxes, seals and, of course, the bears… who on this day were happy to be playing in the snow, rolling around and the like:

Construction has started on the expansion to the Lion exhibit.
