Busy At Triple "D"!!

She is extremely playful & full of energy. 



The Triple "D" staff has been (as always) hard at work!!!  Nick & Heather continue to make progress with the already established animals, all while training the new youngsters and getting them ready for their future stardom! 

Lil' Casey bear is getting ready for his final shoot with Casey Anderson in Bozeman, scheduled for September 7-9.  The almost year-long filming of the two Casey's will be the focus in the future NatGeo Wild! special....release date coming soon!

Cila & Julia continue to grow like weeds!!  As you can see, they are working extremely hard on their "natural" poses for the upcoming August special.  Both pups are full of energy and very eager to work on their training!

Heather & Prince

Heather has been working daily on getting Prince, a year old snow leopard, accustomed to life in the spotlight.  His progress continues with each walk! 

Casey & Nick

We are working hard to get acclimated to all of the animals here at Triple D.  Some will be harder than others, but it looks like Nick is getting Casey bear's blessing!

Mtn Lion Cubs Are Here!!!

Khia - Born July 5, 2011

Kali - July 5, 2011
 Kali & Khia came to the Triple D on July 28, 2011.  They weighed 2.5 lbs upon arrival, and have almost tripled in size in just 2.5 weeks! 

Although these girls are littermates, they are polar opposites in personality.  Kali, who is just slightly larger than her sister, is very mellow and independent, while Khia is our insecure firecracker.  They both love affection and sleep awkwardly & comfortably in our laps after a nice warm bottle of milk.
