A smiling, playful, OMG-too-cute polar bear cub was born recently at the Buffalo Zoo in western New York, and is ready to make its public debut!
The unnamed fluffy white bear was introduced Friday as the zoo announced the next phase of fundraising for a new $18 million polar bear exhibit for him/her.
This should be quite the fundraising draw:
The Buffalo Zoo is one of only two zoos in North America to have successful polar bear births in 2012. The species is listed as Vulernable, a step above Endangered.
The cub is still too small to exhibit for the public, but she’s visible in her enclosure via closed-circuit TV at the zoo until she gets big enough this spring.
He/she must be loving these wintry conditions of late.
