Wet Black Bear Cub Navigates Tree
Spring Black Bear (Ursus americanus) cub navigating his safe place high in the tree. Heavy rainfall the night before made for a soggy little cub and a somewhat slippery surface. No worries for the cub, though - he alternated between dozing at the top of this tree and exploring the lower branches, all morning. Very agile little guy, particularly since he was about 60 feet up.
