Toronto Zoo’s polar bear cub Introduced to snow for the first time

Giovanna’s twins at the Hellabrunn Zoo opened their eyes for the first time, catching a glimpse of mama bear. Polar bear cubs are born blind, toothless and with little fur, and so are entirely dependent on their mother for food and warmth.

The zoo says the twins, born on 9th December 2013, are making good progress and Giovanna is doing well as a first-time mother. The cubs are six weeks old and growing fast. They have not been given names as their gender cannot yet be determined. 

You can see more videos of the twins on the zoo’s YouTube page.
