Taronga’s giant Brown Bear, ‘Bethyl’, was 35 years old today, making her one of the oldest of her species in the world. Bethyl has won the hearts of many keepers and visitors over the years and as a special birthday treat was given, a five kilo Atlantic Salmon to feast on.
Keepers at Taronga Zoo have been preparing cold treats to help the animals cool down in the hot weather this week.
This morning Australasia’s oldest Kodiak Bear Bethyl, celebrated her 34th birthday which included a choir of Roar and Snore guests singing ‘Happy Birthday’ and a big pink birthday present.
