5 Photo Black Bears 1st Birthday!

Oakland Zoo
January 30, 2018

Our black bear cubs -- Pismo, Kern, and Tejon -- celebrated their first birthday in style. On a sunny day in their new habitat at California Trail, they received custom-made, "bear diet friendly" cakes from our friends at Batch Pastries!

Rock star photographer Steven Gotz captured these great shots of the bears enjoying their birthday cake. Thanks Steven!

The three furry brothers and their Mama Cambria are enjoying their new habitat at California Trail, which opens to the public this summer. In the meantime, you can watch the bears live on exhibit on our webcams!
