The Toronto Zoo’s New Polar Bear Cub

The Toronto Zoo’s newest ursine attraction, a 14-week-old polar bear cub, recently made his debut.

The cub – to be named via an online contest sponsored by the zoo – had a rough start to life when his mother rejected him and two other siblings at birth. He was the only survivor from his litter.

Now weighing a healthy 17 kilograms, the baby bear will live in a specially designed enclosure in the zoo’s Tundra Park before being re-introduced to his mother, father and aunt.
