Adelaide Zoo Behind the Scenes Experience: Bear at Breakfast
Get up close and prepare the morning meal for Adelaide's Sun Bear!
Meet Adelaide’s only sun bear and assist the keepers to prepare and place his morning feed. You may also have the opportunity to hand feed him a special treat.
Adelaide Zoo’s male sun bear, Akbar was born in 1987. Akbar was taken illegally from the wild in Thailand when he was a cub and kept as a pet. He was rescued and donated to Adelaide Zoo by Taiping Zoo in Malaysia, arriving at Adelaide Zoo in November 1994. He’s a very sweet and gentle old guy who in his twilight years is starting to turn grey. He has an insatiable sweet-tooth loving soft fruit, honey and peanut butter.
This experience also includes a full day access to Adelaide Zoo to experience the lush botanic CBD zoo, 15 minute walk from Rundle Mall in the heart of Adelaide.
