Polar bear cub, nicknamed “Luna” at the Buffalo Zoo explores an outdoor enclosure to experience snow for the first time . Luna can be seen in the video playing games with staff at the zoo whilst getting used to the new environment.
A lovely video by YouTube user Cheetalover of Frimas and her two cubs Noordje and Pixel spending time together in their outside enclosure. The cubs are full of energy, wanting to play and explore. They try their best to get mum involved but she takes some time to relax whilst keeping a watch on the twins. After tiring themselves out the twins snuggle up to mum to suckle for milk, refuelling them for their next big play.
It’s not always easy being a polar bear mother to twins. Especially not when they start playing in the middle of the night. - Scandinavian Wildlife Park
