The Buffalo Zoo's two polar bear cubs, Luna and Kali, are now out in their new exhibit space. Workers moved the cubs to the tiger exhibit because the growing cubs had outgrown the smaller space they were in. The Buffalo Zoo made improvements to the tiger exhibit, including deepening the pool to five feet to meet the USDA minimum standards for polar bear husbandry.

Luna and Kali will be out in the exhibit from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. The tigers, which are a nocturnal species, will be in the exhibit after 2 p.m. and in the evenings.

The Buffalo Zoo encourages anyone who plans to visit to see a specific animal to call before visiting (716-837-3900). The zoo is located at 300 Parkside Ave.
