Meet Huckleberry + Hawthorne

Brothers since 2018

Born in winter 2018, our grizzly bears were orphaned in the wild: Hawthorne in Alaska, Huckleberry in Montana. Neither would have survived without their mom. Cared for by local zoos, they then came to their new Northwest Trek home in August 2018.

Can you tell them apart?

Huckleberry is lighter brown and smaller. Hawthorne is the opposite. Both bears enjoy elk antlers, branches, puzzle feeders filled with chow, and wrestling each other in their deep pool.
