Knut 2.0

Kinda looks like Knut, huh? (Sadly, the world famous polar bear passed away almost four years ago.) This happens to be Knut’s new half brother! According to Mashable, this fellow was born in December and surfaced for the first time over the weekend at the Rostock Zoo in Germany. He’s due to get a name in March. We translated a bit of their site:

“After ten years, it’s time again: There’s polar bear young in Rostock! The entire zoo team is very excited about the apparently quietschfidele cub. The parents are mother and father Lars Vilma. Will be up to the parent-child duo on the grounds to see, yet it takes a few weeks and depends on the weather. We hope for the end of March. Until then, we are on multiple screens about the zoo distributed recordings from the birth den of Vilma show that are updated weekly. On our website you will find already short clips from the offspring.”




  1. OMG….walk, plop. Walk, plop. Poor behbeh.

  2. So glad that unlike Knut, this one has an affectionate momma who’s apparently bonding.

  3. @kar…I agree! Mama seems interested, loving, and protective of this sweet baby!

  4. Sweet little snowball can’t quite figure out the walking part yet. What a little darling. So cute.
