It probably won’t come as a surprise that the Arctic and sub-Arctic animals living at the Alaska Zoo, such as gray wolves, Amur tigers and moose, thrive in cold weather. As the temperature continues to drop, they become more active – a treat for zoo visitors.
If you can’t make it to the Alaska Zoo in person, keep an eye on the live polar bear cam to see how Lyutik is enjoying the changing seasons. The Alaska Zoo is open daily in September from 9 a.m.–6 p.m. and in October from 10 a.m.–5 p.m.
