While visiting the Palm Beach Zoo we had the pleasure of meeting two very feisty siblings. Juneau & Sitka, two grizzly bears, came to the zoo sick, underweight, and orphaned. While these two looked like any normal siblings fighting over who knows what, we were assured that what looked like fighting was their way of playing. It was quite the site to watch the two siblings splash in the water.
Palm Beach Zoo Grizzly Bears
Since these pictures were taken the two grizzly bears have been relocated to a permanent home in South Dakota and no longer reside at the Palm Beach Zoo. Have no fear they are in good hands. The reason for their relocation is due to the amazing help of the staff at the Palm Beach Zoo that nursed them back to health. They have grown so much that theyand needed a bigger place to roam. We are thankful we had the pleasure of meeting Juneau & Sitka and hope they are happy in their new home.
The Grizzly Bear Symbol
Grizzly bears are considered to symbolize facing your deepest fears, bravery, protection, strength, an open heart, guardianship, and more. This kind of bear is also known for its fishing abilities, making the bear a powerful totem for creating abundance and bountiful provisions.
