Sweet little Oma is adjusting well to her spacious new habitat donated by Bob Barker and his DJ&T Foundation.
Oma, the smallest and sweetest of the two female black bears from our Galt, California, sanctuary, happily explores her spacious, tree-lined habitat and pool in her new home at PAWS' ARK 2000 sanctuary in San Andreas, CA.

Bears are the only animal species that walk plantigrade, with the heel of the foot touching the ground, like humans. They walk with a shuffling gait, and often exaggerate the gait while urinating to mark territory. After making the move from Galt to San Andreas, Oma spent her first few days walking the perimeter of her enclosure, alternating between shuffling and urinating and exploring and foraging. Several dips into her large pool are also part of her new routine which was much more sedentary in Galt. She is obviously loving her new home!
