Bears Birthday at Wild Place ProjectDownload
© Licensed to London News Pictures. 13/01/2020. Cribbs Causeway, South Gloucestershire, UK. The four bears at Wild Place Project celebrate their birthdays with a birthday cake and presents. The bears have also been presented with a cake baked by local celebrity baker, Briony Williams, semi-finalist of The Great British Bake Off. The four European brown bears at home in Bear Wood are all celebrating their second and third birthdays within a week of each other. The bears, called Gemini, Albie, Nilas and Neo, arrived at the south Gloucestershire attraction last summer for the opening of the UK’s largest and most ambitious brown bear exhibit. Although huge, the bears are not yet fully grown and they could eventually grow up to 350kg for males and 200kg for females. Brown bears are one of the largest living carnivores. On average, adult males are eight to 10 per cent larger than females but sizes vary according to the location of the species. Bear Wood is also home to wolves, lynx and wolverine.
