Ted Bowling Again - UPDATE December 4, 2017

Lily Fans captured two videos of Ted in action. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjfOb-z7nY0 Ted and his strawTed and his straw

In the first (3 minutes), he is snuggling down into the straw only to find his bowl in his way time and again.

In the second (4 minutes), he is up and re-arranging his straw, starting with a BIG mouthful of it that he eventually sets down. https://youtu.be/PQ12bZxSa1M

In the wild, we see bears also pick up mouthfuls of bedding as they rake and arrange it. Bits of bedding end up in their scat, which we believe is caused by accidentally swallowing some of it.

Thank you for all you do.
