Baloo - Black Bear

Baloo is a North American black bear. When he came to us in March of 2012 he weighed 3 pounds. When he is full grown he will weigh about 600 pounds. We have built Phase 1 of his permanent enclosure and in the fall of 2014 we completed Phase 1 of his outside enclosure. We call it Baloo's playpen!

There a several videos of Baloo on our YouTube channel, go see!
(You can see how very grown up Baloo is now!)
