RACINE-- Two new animals are moving into the Racine Zoo. 

Starting Saturday, August 6th, Zoo-goers will be able to see Noreeja, an Andean Bear, and Ashton, a Tawny Frogmouth, the Zoo says. 

Noreeja is a 24-year-old female who comes to Racine from the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. On the smaller side, she weighs 150 lbs. 

Noreeja--or Nora--will be joining Diamond, the male Andean bear, as a companion. They can both be seen in the Andean bear enclosure. 

Birthday boy Ashton, who turned four on August 3rd, came from Sea World in Orlando, FL. Ashton can be found in the Walkabout Creek Exhibit near the main entrance.
