He's the 850-pound orphaned polar bear
who's the highlight of the St. Louis Zoo's
new Polar Bear Point exhibit.
Orphaned as a cub, Kali was rescued
from the Alaskan wilderness and
spent 2 years at the Buffalo New York zoo
before the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation
issued a letter of agreement that
brought him to St. Louis.
Kali's new home is a 40,000-square-foot habitat
that offers visitors a 22-foot viewing window,
where the polar bear can come right up
to the glass to greet guests.
The sea water area features a 1,000-square-foot
Arctic room with a 4-panel viewing wall.
Kali loves to swim, dive, pose for the camera,
play football, and say hi to the children.
