Curious Andean Bear Cubs – Wild Inside the National Zoo

Born in mid-November of 2014, Mayni and Muniri, two supercute Andean Bear cubs, are now at the age where they’re getting into everything, so the Smithsonian’s National Zoo team are working hard to babyproof the cubs’ yard and provide what they need to learn and grow. Their mother Billie Jean is also extremely attentive. Her care of the cubs has provided opportunities for the zoo caretakers to observe Andean Bear behaviors not yet witnessed in the wilds of South America’s Andes Mountains.
