In 2000 ZooAmerica opened a major new exhibit for bears. The bear habitat was moved and completely revamped, giving the animals a natural environment in which to roam. In addition, the "Black Bear Encounter" features a 13,000-gallon swimming pond for the bears. In 2001 the Zoo brought in a temporary exhibit of two albino alligators.
