MEET KALI

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.

  8. Can I ask for something you? In Blogger's gadget there is a translator. Can you put it to the right side? This way I can read, do not speak English. (If it is not an inconvenience) Regards
