Polar Cub Crawl

Prepare for some searingly sweet baby polar bear wriggling cuteness from the  Toronto Zoo‘s newest cub.

He’s been named Hudson and in this video he’s all, “Look Ma, I’m a sloth!”

We have Callie H. to thank for this submission and for showing us polar bear cubs don’t walk until around 4 months. Who knew?!

We’re So Happy We Wet Our Pandas!

Be the Stick

To become a master of bear-fu requires discipline and hours of practice. It also helps to begin one’s training at a very early age.

Today is International Polar Bear Day

From Pole to Pole, Feb. 27 is the day to celebrate the great white bear.


So be sure to greet every polar bear you meet today with a big high five, OK? And did you know, according to many well-informed myths, all polar bears are left-handed. Other sources are convinced they are right. So pay attention to the paw and help resolve this important debate. After all, we know you care how many are left.

I won’t make it thru the Halftime show!

OMG the spectacle. [Mini-bear cringing]

Hold Me!


Animaltographer Jenny Ross captured this one.

Chug! Chug! Chug!

Writer Melissa D. over at the Today is asking “What Makes something Cute Anyway?” Melissa, just study our 48 Rules of Cuteness and they tell all.

Meanwhile, there is some new Polar Bear action going on over in the Scandinavian Wildlife Park. Meet Siku, the milk-chugging polar passer-outer:

A House Derided Cannot Stand

Oh, the finger-pointing was rampant that day. Carl blamed Randolph for sloppy blueprints. Bernie said it was Lou’s fault for buying cheap materials. But they all agreed on one thing: next time, they would hire a licensed contractor.


Personally, Chi King, I think it may be all that bamboo consumption.

THIS JUST IN: Honk-shuing Polar Bear

Born last month at the Scandinavian Wildlife Park in Copenhagen, little Siku (it means “sea ice”) wasn’t getting enough milk from his mother, so keepers are giving him 24-hour care until he’s big enough to rejoin the family (contrary to the video’s title, he’s not an orphan). Listen closely for some classic honk-shuu action!

Also, check out the photo gallery at the Chicago Sun-Times.

Y’all Come Back Now, Yuh Heah?

We just can’t bear to see you (and your pic-a-nic basket) leave so soon!
