But they don’t have Bebeh Polar Bears.

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

These Polar Bears at the San Diego Zoo asked Santa for some snow for Christmas. Well, The Jolly Old Elf has come through in a major way- delivering 26 TONS of it. Kalluk, Tatqiq and Chinook seem to enjoy it a LOT. “This was a special day for the polar bears,” said Susan Purtell, senior keeper, San Diego Zoo. “I could tell they really loved it. It was great seeing them roll around in the snow, showcasing their natural behaviors.”

What DO Polar Bears Dream About?

We still don’t know, but this goes to show, don’t eat pizza with anchovies after 9pm.

Live From Manitoba: It’s Polar Bear Week!

ThatOneFriend(Actually it started on Sunday. Apologies.) So, the folks at Explore.org have set up a live Polar Bear Cam (below) broadcasting from lovely and cold Churchill, Manitoba. The “Polar Bear Capital of the World.” Haven’t seen any PB types waddling by yet, though. C.O. thanks to Mike G. for the outstanding press kit.

Knut 2.0

eisbaer_800_fitKinda 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.”
