Hamako

Years alone: 9

Hamako

Hamako has been alone for 9 years, since the death of her companion Miyo. Her outdoor enclosure at the Hamamatsu City Zoo in Japan has no shade for her in the hot summer heat. Her indoor enclosure temperature was only 9.3 celsius in the middle of winter with no heater. Himeko shows a stress-coping behavior of patterned pacing in her outdoor enclosure, with which she occupies her time until the next “feeding time”.
