Timmura Johnson Christmas came early! We in Columbus love Nora fiercely! It was always such a treat to watch her dive, catch fish and be a total ham for all the visitors. But it truly warms my heart even more to see her so playful with her Aunt Hope! Thank you for sharing!
Lori Maness I thought polar bears were solitary. Was I taught wrong?

Elisa Harless All zoos should have more than 1 animal of each kind they are happier and live longer it seems
Cheyenne Miller Is there any chance that y'all are gonna get pandas? Not red pandas but good old fashioned black and white pandas.
Susan Stutz This is the best Christmas present ever!!!!! I loved Nora and visited her when she was here in Oregon. She played and had fun, but also sat and seemed quite sad. This is simply the best thing ever to see. Thank you Hope for your kindness and for the Hogle Zoo and all of these friends past caretakers – this is super!

Shelly Marie So excited for Hope and Nora and for Utah's Hogle Zoo! We know how much work you put in to make this happen. The naysayers had doubt but I believed in you all the way.
