Nope... They shut down that exhibit quite awhile ago due to the Polar Bear not doing to well. And then just in the past couple years, the bear passed and his habitat was given to the brown bears you see playing/fighting in the pictures.

That's a shame. It makes sense though. I guess the SC heat could be torture on a Polar Bear.

I imagine so... The polar bears warmest native season is around 60F, so imagine 100F+ must have been hell for him. The SeaWorld exhibit in FL keeps the temperature at 60F all yaer round and the bear down there is much more active than I have ever seen ours, after seeing that, I think the heat was definately a factor in his death.
