Yellowstone Bear World, Rexburg, Idaho

Have you ever wanted to bottle feed a black bear cub? At Yellowstone Bear World, you might have the chance to get up close and personal with the cubs, from petting them to bottle feeding them. It is all you can imagine and more. In addition to the behind-the-scenes experience, you can also pet other wildlife such as deer.   

If you are interested in feeding the adult animals, you can join a staff member on the Wildlife Excursion. You will have the option to get close to bison, elk, and grizzly and black bears. This is an amazing opportunity to photograph the animals as well.   

If bears aren’t your style, you can surround yourself with butterflies in The Butterfly Haven. Within the Haven, you have the opportunity to watch hundreds of exotic butterflies flutter around and have a chance to feed them nectar.
