Meet Josh The Bear
Price: $40.00

This Ticket Does Not Include General Admission!
All Participants Must Be At Least 8 Years of Age

Josh the Bear is an easy going 600-pound Black Bear who enjoys being around people. Josh spent his youth, since he was a bottle-fed cub, working for a wildlife education program. There he made appearances at schools, birthday parties, and other events until the facility closed in 2010. Josh spent his first 14 years in a 20 by 20 foot enclosure - far from ideal for an animal his size. Flamingo Gardens built Josh a new 8,000 sq. ft. habitat with his own pool and cave when he came to live here in 2013.

Come along on a VIP tour with one of our trained Animal Care Staff for an informative encounter. You will be taken behind the scenes to meet the world famous Black Bear, Josh. Learn about Black Bears, their place in the Florida ecosystem, and how Josh came to live at Flamingo Gardens. You will also have the opportunity to handfeed Josh.

Tours will be at 1:00 and must be booked at least 3 days in advance.

  • All opportunities to meet Josh and feed him will depend fully on his cooperation.
  • You will be required to sign an agreement that will include proper procedures, etiquette, and all rules that apply to the encounter.
  • All participants are required to wear close-toed shoes and will have to disinfect shoes in a half inch deep footbath before entering the back area.

Price: $35.00
