Morning stretches with Tatqiq at the San Diego Zoo

About a week ago Dylan and I went to a Polar Bear Tweet-up at the San Diego Zoo to learn more about the polar bears and other arctic animals. We had hopes of some great polar bear interactions and underwater swimming antics, but the polar bears had something else in mind. Sleeping.

In Tatqiq's defense, it was cold and early on a Sunday morning. She's a princess and needs her beauty rest. Watching her morning stretches wasn't what we had in mind, but still very entertaining.

After a few minutes of stretching, Tatqiq decided she wasn't ready to get up and went back to sleep.

While Tatqiq slept, Chinook and Kalluk were busy playing, or should I say attempting to bred again, on the other side of the exhibit. Either way, we had a wonderful time and learned so much about polar bears and the arctic fox from JoAnne Simmerson. Be sure to read JoAnne's posts on the zoo's blog to stay informed about all things polar bear. Oh, and the Polar Cam is always fun to watch too!
