WEST YELLOWSTONE, MONTANA
On September 30th, 2011, the Discovery Center received two new bears Grant and Roosevelt. Tragically, their mother was euthanized after Yellowstone Park biologists confirmed that she was connected to two fatalities this summer. Fortunately, we were able to offer a home to her cubs. Grant, the smaller cub, is "a real firecracker," according to our animal keepers. He likes to climb and is very outgoing. Roosevelt is about 10 pounds heavier than his brother and is shy and reserved. They have been introduced to other bears, including Coram and 101. They enjoy playing out in the habitat tremendously.

Grant & Roosevelt: Female bears occasionally breed twice in a season. Having the same mother but different fathers could explain the differences in Grant and Roosevelt’s sizes and color.
