I heard bears don't always hibernate, especially when they have a comfortable steady supply of food available.

benny stays in more than sybil.
but, will come out to eat.

they usually are in for the winter when it starts to get cold.
we had some nice days, so sybil was out quite a bit.

mine don't go into a "deep sleep"
sometimes, they come out, mostly when it is not real cold.
or if they see me or hubby. but, if it is really cold, sybil won't budge.
benny makes a giant nest for them, they both snuggle in, and cover up.
I am going to see if there is room for me there :lol:

sybil and benny still get fed thru hibernation, but, not everyday and not near as much as in the summer. and they do hibernate.

they are actually too old to play. their first priority is food.

they like to be petted, talked to and of course fed treats.

What makes them too old to play? And do they have to be petted, etc., from outside their space?

guess, I don't know how to play with a 300lb and 700lb bear. icon_confused.gif

certain type playing could have be potentially confused by the bears.

yes, they like to be petted. in or outside the pen.
mostly, they love attention. I talk to them as much as I can and hand feed them treats.

BirdieBee

it depends if you dont want them to breed.
it is easier to have the male fixed.

I don't think it would change their disposition either way.

sybil and benny are not fixed.
to be honest, I am surprised they never had cubs.
but, I have heard if bears are fed a little during hibernation,
less chance of cubs.

prior to buying bears, please make sure you fully
understand their needs and proper care.

also, check to see if they are legal in your state.
