Adorable Polar Bear Cub Takes Ice Bath at Oregon Zoo


Footage provided courtesy of the Oregon Zoo on Tuesday shows this adorable 10 month-old polar bear cub named Nora playing in a pool of Ice at her enclosure in Portland. Nora explored her new enclosure, wriggling around in a tub of crushed ice and swimming in the pool. The young polar bear will be taking some time to settle into her new home, and if all continues to go well, Zoo visitors can expect to see her later in October.

    Footage courtesy of the Oregon Zoo shows Nora, a 10-month old polar bear cub, playing in a tub full of ice and swimming around in a pool while she was adjusting to her new home. Nora was born in the Columbus Zoo in Ohio back in November 2015 and flew in to Portland just last month. The adorable little cub will soon join 31-year-old female Tasul in the polar bear exhibit. Nora will join Tasul and other polar bears at the Oregon Zoo in helping climate scientists track polar bear diets and movements using a high-tech collar. The data is being used to help researchers develop methods to investigate the effect of retreating sea ice on polar bears.

  • Watch the Moment Baby Polar Bear Enters Public Zoo Enclosure for First Time

    Video provided courtesy of Munich Hellabrunn Zoo shows the moment that the zoo's new baby polar bear showed herself to public for the first time in the outdoor tundra enclosure on Friday. Closely accompanied by her mother Giovanna, the 14 week old cub faced zoo visitors for the first and appeared happy and ready for the new adventure. Now that the fluffy little cub is old enough to brave the outdoor enclosure, zoo staff decided the moment was right to bring the little white bear out in front of visitors. She was closely accompanied by her mother as she explored and pottered around, playing in the woodchip and clambering over the rocks and grass of her pen. Zoo staff have not yet given a name to their new cub, but bear will soon receive a name beginning with the letter 'Q'. All animals born at the Munich Hellabrunn Zoo in 2016 receive a name beginning with the same letter. The zoo has put together a list of seven of their favorite names and have asked visitors to vote for their favorite. The zoo hopes the baby bear will encourage onlookers to take a greater interest in endangered species. Polar bears live in fragile habitats, which are being threatened by global warming and melting polar ice caps.

  • Polar Bear Cub Tries to Take His First Steps as Mum Watches On

    Video provided courtesy of the Berlin Zoo shows the adorable moments when an as yet unnamed newly born polar bear cub took his first steps. A camera captured Berlin Zoo’s newest Arctic addition trying and failing to stand up on the floor of his private enclosure Tonja, the mother polar bear, is breastfeeding her cub every couple of hours and keeping close watch over the little one as he scrambles about on the hay. The cub weighed just over 1 pound when it was born last month. The gender of the little bear hasn't yet been determined, but by the time polar bears are fully grown, males weigh nearly one thousand pounds and females weigh up to 550. Tonja gave birth to twins on November third, but, unfortunately, one of the pair died, a fact which is not uncommon in the wild. The cub was kept under special care by zoo staff and veterinarians for a month, common practice for zoos with newborn bear cubs, before press were even allowed to photograph the baby animal.
