Emerging from a cozy hibernation, Nita, the grizzly bear at The Maryland Zoo, finds herself still a bit roly-poly but undeterred by the lingering winter weight. With boundless energy and enthusiasm, she eagerly engages in a playful ball game, her massive paws expertly swatting at the spherical toy as she revels in the joy of movement. With each playful bounce and swat, Nita sheds the remnants of hibernation, embracing the warmth of spring and the sheer pleasure of playtime in her habitat.
