Weight

Fun fact of the day…

During the winter, bears live off of the fat their bodies have stored up in the summer and fall. By the time they emerge from their dens in the springtime they are very hungry and may have lost up to one-third of their body weight.

Sleeping

Fun fact of the day…

The brown bears spend four to six months a year curled deep in sleep in a den. That’s one-third to one-half of their lifetime!

Ice Den

Fun fact of the day…

The mother polar bear digs a cozy den in the snow to have her cubs. The den is no bigger than a telephone booth, but is much warmer than outside.

Lazy Sloth

Fun fact of the day…

Due to the low nutritional value of their leafy diet, sloths are decidedly “lazy” by most mammalian standards, moving quite slowly and sleeping a great deal

Otters

Fun fact of the day…

Otters hold hands(paws) when sleeping so they don’t drift away from each other.
