It was a white polar bear Christmas at the Toronto Zoo


We may not have a white Christmas here in Toronto, but we have a white Christmas here at the Toronto Zoo.
 
Our polar bear cub is now six weeks old and weighs 2.1 kg. Her eyes are now fully open, her nose and foot pads are now black and she is teething. Her ears are also fully open and she is able to hear. She now eats seven times a day, and still enjoys exercise or "play" time after each feed.

CLICK HERE and you can hear her "trilling", the sound of a very content bear.
 
This is still an extremely critical time for this tiny cub and Zoo staff are providing 24/7 care. Please note, the polar bear cub is not visible to the public.
