Moscow veterinarians continue treating the Red Book animal.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The Dikson island rescued white bear’s hind legs react to tickling. This was told by the Moscow Zoo director Svetlana Akulova.

“Veterinary doctors regularly conduct training with the bear to test reflexes and sensitivity: tickle motionless paws with a brush. And at the latest training, Dikson reacted more actively. According to zoologists, it can be surface sensitivity, since the deep – pain – sensitivity has not yet appeared”, wrote Svetlana Akulova in her Telegram channel.

According to her, it will take more time to restore the white bear, because he has a spinal shock.

“Zoologists are careful in forecasts, but continue to deal with Dikson and fix his every reaction”, said Svetlana Akulova.

Earlier, the This Is Taimyr wrote that people saved the Red Book white bear, as condensed milk can was stuck in his mouth. We also told that white bears learn to survive in warming conditions.
