Norfolk, VA – The Virginia Zoo had an early Super Bowl celebration Saturday morning.

It was up to their two brother moon bears to decide who was going to win the big game.

Zoo volunteers painted two boxes: one for the New England Patriots and another for the Seattle Seahawks.

The boxes were filled with treats and then put in the bears’ outdoor habitat.

Not only was this a fun activity for the bears. The activity served as an enrichment program too.

Enrichment programs build on natural animal behaviors.
