Pride of Sea World

One of the Polar Bears going for a dive.

Polar Bear Shores is based on an Arctic summer and therefore bears in the wild would experience this type of habitat. Within the exhibit is natural looking rock work, a rock platform where the bears can see outside, various trees, shrubs and logs and a digging pit with changing substrates.

There is a main salt water pool, with a depth varying from 1-4 meters and a water temperature ranging from 7-21 degrees. Over the back of the exhibit is two waterfalls that lead into fresh water creeks and pools. Inset into the rock walls are five movie set fans that can reach speeds of up to 25km/hr. Also set into the rock work are rain and mist generators

Nice action shot! I caught one here at our zoo in May. We also have Sea World here, but no polar bears there.
