Scott unveiled a new Lily and Hope exhibit (3 minutes).

Sharon and Spencer showed how they prepare breakfast for bears (2:11 minutes).

Ted showed his reactions to his first full meal with big bites of romaine. Carrots were next. Apples were last. (2:22 minutes).

After his big brunch, Ted did the same thing he did yesterday after his little preview snack. He said, “I’m still in transition from hibernation to full metabolism and activity, and I just have to lie down” (as in the picture from yesterday).

I just saw the announcement that tickets are on sale for the 10th Annual Lilypad Picnic. The organizers wrote that this celebration will be the BIGGEST and BEST picnic yet and will be a FOUR DAY event—July 18-21. I am very much looking forward to this get together. I’ve been hearing from a lot of people that they are coming. For more information, go to

Thank you for all you do.
