Title Polar bear(s) at Brooklyn's Prospect Park Zoo (4)
Date 09/10/1938
Year Range from 1931
Year Range to 1940
Description The big (male?) polar bear splashes into the pool. The smaller bear is further up the rocks of their pen. Their attention is caught by something off to the right. As the big bear is further back in this picture then in 303 it's possible the sequence of events has been disturbed and this picture was actually taken before 304.
