I also uploaded the video from the grizzly bear experience, the one where one of the bears is doing what the keepers call the "Yoga Bear." There were two bears there, and I don't recall whether it was Emmett or Digger who was doing the "Yoga Bear." You will be able to see clearly why it is called that in the video, as well as in the picture below! Apparently this is a behavior that was not taught into the bear, and is an action that has been observed before in wild bears, both in the wild and in wild bears that have been brought into captivity. This particular bear apparently did it once when he was first brought to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo from California (I believe), but then didn't do it again for four years. Now he does it all the time apparently, as the keepers will typically reward that kind of behavior. Enjoy the video!
