Polar Bear Plunge, New Mexico Style, at the ABQ BioPark

Twin polar bear brothers Kiska and Koluk demonstrate a real polar bear plunge at the ABQ BioPark

At the annual volunteer dinner (August 2021) at the ABQ BioPark, twin polar bear brothers Kiska and Koluk entertained us during their feeding time with a real polar bear plunge.

The brothers are 25 years old and enjoy fetching the 10-lbs of trout that the keeper throws to them each day. Kiska and Koluk have a beautiful habitat complete with 20-foot water slide, waterfalls, a 14-foot-deep pool, an air-conditioned cave, and water that is kept cold with large chillers.

Enjoy the video below and some sunset photos with Kiska and Koluk at the ABQ BioPark!
