20171106_194826  The Kodiak Bear Books offer photographs and information about the growth and development of Munsey and Boda!

 

I began documenting the Kodiak bear cubs through photography in October of 2015 at the Grand Opening of the JP Adler Kodiak Bear Exhibit.  Since October 2015, I’ve taken thousands of photographs and have begun charting the growth and development of the bears using a graphing format.  This information along with the photographs is used when I’m writing my blog and books and is also shared with the zoo staff at Wildwood Zoo.

Munsey and Boda never disappoint, when it comes to being interactive and sometimes even a little death-defying in regards to their behavior with each other and/or as individual characteristics.

Sometimes they’ll appear to be hugging each other and truly seem at peace with each other and the next minute they’ve into a full force wrestling match!

Munsey loves to play and toss his collection of field stones whenever given the opportunity. I’ve documented him tossing his stones for 30 minute periods of time, multiple times throughout the day.

When Munsey was finished with tossing field stones he decided to climb about 25 feet up a tree to retrieve some tender leaves and branches.

As much as I enjoy photographing Munsey and Boda climbing up a tree, I really wish they’d stop climbing trees!  Munsey is about 840 lbs. and Boda is 860 lbs. on 8/29/2018. The boys an about 3 1/2 years old at this time.

Munsey’s special talent is to collect rocks and stones and place them on his nose or forehead and toss them up into the air and hit them with his paw.

aDSC_0906

Munsey has been perfecting his technique in stone throwing for the past two years.

aDSC_0911

This morning Munsey was kind enough to demonstrate just how well he can throw these rocks while swimming in the pond located at the Wildwood Zoo in Marshfield, Wisconsin.

I had been informed that Munsey and Boda would stop climbing tree’s when they reached 12 months of age.  Well, I can tell you that this isn’t the case with Munsey and Boda!

aDSC_0074treeclimbing

This is Munsey climbing a fairly small tree on June 26th, 2018! In August Munsey and Boda will be 3 1/2 years old and they are still climbing trees!

aDSC_0082tree climbing

Munsey is about 820 lbs at this time.  It’s hard to believe that a bear can manage to move that amount of weight right up a tree!

aDSC_0113tree climbing

As you can see, this tree isn’t very large and I know that I’d heard a number of branches cracking as Munsey began to desend back to Earth!

aDSC_0117tree climbing

It takes careful footing for Munsey to figure out where to place his weight as he makes his downward journey to the ground.
