Zoo Tails Image of the Week: Playfull Polar Bears

The polar bears of Polar Frontier at the Columbus Zoo were in rare form during our latest visit in November 2011. The exhibit is one of the best due to the pools being stocked with live trout which the bears love to eat. The underwater viewing area is also a great touch, especially when one of the bears decides to sit on top of it.

Pictures of Pixie the Manatee at the Columbus Zoo

We took a short trip to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium today and took some pictures of Pixie, one of the three new rescued manatees from Florida. A zoo staff member informed us that they believe Pixie is between one and two years old and weighs one hundred something pounds. She is certainly the smallest manatee I have ever seen! Did you know the manatee exhibit has a retractable roof- just like a football stadium. How cool is that!
