When Minnie is testing the suitability of a spot for a nap, the results are almost invariably positive.
By far the most dormant bear at our China sanctuary, Minnie is something of a slave to the snooze. Every winter she will lose her appetite and bed down for months on end.
The bear managers have to be alert to Minnie getting too comfortable around this time of year, because if they're not careful, she'll crash out in the enclosure. When that happens, nobody can go in to set up the enclosure with yummy food and toys until Minnie is through napping.
But generally, Minnie likes to make herself a cozy bed for winter. She'll fill her hanging basket with cozy leaves and branches to make the perfect "mattress" then the only sound you'll hear from her is the gentle snores of a satisfied sleeper.
