Snow in Australia holiday gift for polar bears
Kanook, Ping Ping, Lia and Lutik live a very warm Sea World in Brisbane, Australia. But a little Christmas magic, and a snow machine, will provide them with icy snow for the next month. Though it's the dog days of summer in Australia, the holiday season inspired the zoo to try out a winter landscape to keep their bears happy and healthy, both physically and mentally.
Polar bears are very smart, and need a wide variety of stimuli to keep them from suffering problems in captivity. Among other stimulating things the four have, there are even wind generation fans designed to entertain the bears with a wide range of interesting smells.
