As a meat eating animal, you wouldn’t expect a polar bear to get excited over fruit and vegetables, but surprise these bear loves their veggies.

Who needs seals, they got broccoli 🙂

Polar bears at theTokyo’s Ueno Zoo were determined to get to the fruit and vegetables on offer – even if they were enclosed in blocks of ice.

Male bear Yukio adopted a practical approach to the task – he lifted up the ice block close to his face and took a mouthful. While the female, Reiko, was less hands on. She stooped her head instead and took a bite.  Nice!

    Very interesting that the bears are willing to adapt to the change in their diet so easily. And thank you for the nice article Nurse Goodbody. With all the Hollywood sleaze that the media throws at us, it makes me appreciate this type of journalism.
