PREMiERdrum Posted May 6, 2010 Share Posted May 6, 2010 Columbus Zoo's Polar Frontier exhibit is now open, featuring Polar Bears, Alaskan Brown Bears, and Arctic Fox. The Polar Bear habitat is the largest of its kind in the world, and features a large grass yard, a tide pool, a large pool with live fish for the bears to catch, several fallen real trees for enrichment, and several viewing opportunities: From above the bears, at eye level with the bears in the pool, and even below the bears as they swim. The Alaskan Brown Bear exhibit, home to Brutus and Buckeye, also features a large yard, giant pool, and great viewing opportunities. The area is also home to a family of arctic foxes, whose exhibit is built to look like an abandoned work shed, going along with the Alaskan Mining Town theme of the whole area.
