Rescued black bear Tuk and Kermode bear Clover are getting along just fine, according to the latest from the BC Wildlife Park.

"The pair are now permanently on exhibit together, full time. As the introduction is still quite new, you may see interactions between them, and our team will continue to monitor them," according to the park in a Facebook post.

The park is reminding visitors that there is never a guarantee to see any of the animals.

"All animals, including Clover and Tuk have full access to their den area at all times, and they are free to go on and off exhibit at their leisure. In Clover and Tuk’s case, their habitat is very large, over 2.65 acres, so they may be exploring areas of their habitat that are not visible to the public," according to the Facebook post.
