The Oklahoma City Zoo's annual Groundhog Day prediction was made Saturday morning by grizzly bear brothers, Will and Wiley. Groundhogs are not part of the zoo's collection, so the bears were designated as this year's official Groundhog's Day delegates.

The public was invited to watch as the bears entered their exhibit in the zoo's Big Rivers at Oklahoma Trails. The bears were treated to a variety of treats, including fruits, nuts, popcorn, peanut butter and honey that was spread on the windows of the exhibit. Guests enjoyed free hot chocolate and doughnuts.
