VIDEO: the Toronto Zoo’s polar bear cub frolics in the snow and continues to be adorable
Toronto’s frigid winter and recent blizzards seem all worth it today. In the Toronto Zoo’s new video, its now three-month-old polar bear cub playfully embraces his new outdoor habitat and demonstrates that he is, in fact, a real bear. The mountain of fluffy snow is deep enough to swallow the poor guy, but he bravely ventures forth and buries his little snout into the powder. Look for the pure delight on his face when he re-emerges and paws the snow off his ears.
Those who feel particularly attached to the cub—perhaps from watching this emotional journey on repeat—can actually have a say in naming him. Visit the Toronto Zoo’s website and choose from their selection of six possible names, from James (after James Bay) to Searik (meaning beautiful in Inuit). From what we’ve seen of the cub so far, we’re on Team Humphrey, which apparently means “Peaceful Warrior.”
