At this evening’s volunteer dinner at the ABQ BioPark, twin polar bear brothers Kiska and Koluk entertained us during their feeding time with a real polar bear plunge.
The brothers are 25 years old and enjoy fetching the 10-lbs of trout that the keeper throws to them each day. Kiska and Koluk have a beautiful habitat complete with 20-foot water slide, waterfalls, a 14-foot-deep pool, an air-conditioned cave, and water that is kept cold with large chillers.
Enjoy the video below and some sunset photos with Kiska and Koluk!
