Return to Ben'S Den Page 2 of 8    
This is Benny, the black bear.  He is about 6 months old in this picture..
His coloring changed since he was a few months old, now he looks like a black bear and not a grizzly bear.  His face was light brown  almost blonde in color
This is Benny resting after playing with Sybil. I wouldn't let them together until Benny felt comfortable with Sybil. He was afraid of her when he was smaller.. Surprisingly  though, Sybil was very good with him when he was small.. but, Benny was still afraid of her until he grew closer to her size.
This picture was taken summer 2002
