Ted, at age 17, is gentle and friendly to his human caretakers. Ted's pleasant vocalizations assures us that he is trusting of his caretakers, but he reacts to Lucky as wild males would react to one another around a female during mating season.

Ted enjoys resting on the logs in front of the viewing area windows and continues to vocalize with warm grunts as his caretakers approach him.  Ted enjoys daily swims in the pond as well as showers in his private enclosure.  One of Ted’s favourite supplemental foods is red grapes.

He has developed arthritis over the years and is under the constant care of his veterinarians, caretaker team and Dr. Rogers.

Ted and Honey were raised together for about ten years in captivity in Wisconsin. Ted was born in January 1997, the smallest of three cubs. He is black most of the year but bleaches to dark brown in mid-summer when he begins shedding.
