The Philadelphia Zoo opened in 1874 and was America’s first zoo. The zoo’s bear pits were originally constructed in 1874, but they were replaced by the Bear Country exhibit in 1980. Bear Country with its waterfalls, brooks, and pools is home to polar bears, sloth bears, Andean bears, and Asiatic black bears. Polar bears come from the world’s Arctic regions, can weight up to 1,200 pounds, and can swim underwater for up to 2 minutes.
