baby floke

Knut has some competition! There is a new baby polar bear in town named Floke and he’s adorable. I don’t read German very well but it seems he was abandoned by his mother (or she was killed) and these scientests are taking care of him.

Lots more videos of him here. [VIA MeFi]

  1. Roger C. says:

    Floke is a baby (girl) polar bear born in Nurnberg. She was separated from her mother as a precaution: another polar bear ate her youngs a few months earlier, probably because she thought that they would not survive (Darwin works in many different ways). Floke is now 4 kg, growing very fast.
