I hadn't been to the Detriot Zoo in decades, and found myself there again in 2008.
Their exhibit of Arctic wildlife is intriguing.

In July, as imagined, there's not much activity above-ground.
Belowground is where it's interesting.
Upon approach, I saw this:

Not knowing what everyone was "ooohing" and "aaawing" about, when I got further into
the underwater tube, I saw this:

Yeah, it's a Polar Bear, walking along the glass or plastic tunnel.

Here's a view of the tube itself:

Next, there's this guy.
The whole time I viewed him, I heard the voice of Scar from the Disney animated movie
"The Lion King," even though it's a tiger.
Here I am, thinking in Scar's voice, 'Oh, MUST you impose on me? I cannot bear it another moment.'

IMAGE: http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/922/k5DBkM.jpg

Then he seemed to relax his demeanor. In Scar's voice:
'Oh, very well. If you insist, I shall offer a single pose, but nothing more. Now begone with you.'

We have a similar set up for the polar bears at our zoo. It was renovated a few years ago. It is fun to watch them at feeding time.
