Hear that? Listen … … It’s the soft pittah pattah of bebbeh polah beah paws …
Zookeepers in Novosibirsk, Russia, report that mama, Gerda, brought her 4 month old cub out of their den for the first time on March 6.
No one knows if the cub is a boy or a girl, and Gerda’s not ready to share yet.
This summer, there will be a special contest held for local residents to choose the little bear’s name.
Er, that gives us a great head start, doesn’t it? Nobody said we can’t have our own naming fun. And, we can plan a trip to the Novosibirsk Zoo! And, we can squee over “our” bebbeh polah beah, that we named, the best name of all in the whole world! Right?!
