New at the Zoo: Andean Bear Beorn

During your next visit to the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, look up—there may be a bear in the treetops! Beorn, a 1-year-old Andean bear, joined our Zoo family this summer and has been busily exploring his exhibit. Get to know Beorn in this Q&A with animal keeper Sara Colandrea.
