Loving Polar Bear Mama Playing With Her Baby For The First Time
One of Russia’s greatest zoos experienced a significant increase in happiness after the long-awaited arrival of the polar bear. The largest carnivores on Earth, polar bears only reproduce once every two to three years, and even less frequently when living in an unnatural environment.
On the 7th of December 2015 happy white bear parents, Kay and Gerda gave birth to their second cub. The cute bear was born absolutely hairless and helpless. The cub spends the first months of life together with its mother in the den until it gets stronger. It is impossible to determine the cub`s gender yet, so it is too early to give this wild animal a name.
In January this tiny snow bear opened its eyes, and its ears went up. This sweet creature has a good appetite and is gaining weight well. Dad is not allowed to the young one and the mother because the staff fears the male`s unpredictable reaction. So Kay will be kept isolated in another enclosure for a year.
Once the cute bear grew a bit older, it and its mother are let out from the den into the fresh air for the first time. The little thing is enjoying the first snow in its life. It studies the world with caution but at the same time has fun playing with its mother. Please SHARE this story with your friends and family.
