Each year the 2nd of February is a remarkable day at the Budapest Zoo, because according to folk divination its said the bear is a real winter forecast, will show the coming length of winter season. If on this day the bear sees his shadow …  being a sunny day … then it will take a long time still the winter to be here, but if it does not see his shadow then …  ie weather is overcast daylight … the winter is not going to last so long. will stay outside or heading back to its cave to sleep some more.

“Balu the Brown Bear … to see or not to see its shadow!?!  That question remains until Sunday … will it stay outside or go back into its cave in having more sleep.  To find out … this coming Sunday visitors are welcomed to see.
