The spectacled bear gets its name from the distinctive rings of white or beige fur around its eyes. These markings stand out against the rest of the bear, which is usually black or dark brown, and look like eyeglasses (or spectacles).

The Rosamond Gifford Zoo is open year round, and winter is a fantastic time to view the animals.  All of the outside exhibits at the zoo feature animals that were chosen for their ability to adapt to the region's climate.  For guests who prefer warmer temperatures, 60 percent of the exhibits are indoors, making the zoo a great destination even on cold and snowy days.

The Rosamond Gifford Zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
