Anori The Baby Polar Bear

Meet Anori, an adorable baby polar bear who was recently born in Wuppertal, Germany. This little cutie is the half-sister to polar bear superstar, Knut (they share the same father). Zookeepers are expecting little Anori to be just as popular! Huge crowds are seen gathered all around Anori's enclosure taking pictures and watching her just being her bear-y cute self. This little cub sure has the life: nursing from mama bear whenever she pleases and making crowds swoon. See for yourself!...

Polar Bear Handstand

Why is this polar bear performing an underwater handstand? Several theories have been offered. – "So the dirty water goes away." – It loves shellfish and is digging for clams, mussels or oysters. – It noticed the camera, and the observer-expectancy effect kicked in. – It's preparing to audition for a Coca-Cola commercial. – Those seagulls dared it to. – It lost a contact lens. Granted, some of the hypotheses are more plausible than others. Got a better explanation? Share it in the comments....

Our world's got a little darker last spring when Knut--the beloved polar bear who captured the world's attention as a newborn cub in 2008--died suddenly at the Berlin Zoo.

And as you can see from this video, he is indeed "unbearably cute." We still miss Knut, but there's always room in our hearts for new polar bears....

Hans-Martin Issler, Getty Images Twin polar bear cubs Aleut and Gregor made their first foray into the public eye at the Nuremberg Zoo on Thursday, dazzling zoo-goers with a three-hour playtime packed with cute antics. According to the Daily Mail, the 45-pound cubs spent the afternoon pawing their way around the Arctic Circle enclosure and taking swimming lessons in their chilled pool, all while under the protective eye of their mother, Vera. Aleut and Gregor are expected to tip the scales at 1,500 pounds when fully grown. Only days after the sudden death of 4-year-old superstar Knut (also born at the Nuremberg Zoo), Aleut and Gregor's coming out party couldn't have happened at a better...

Our furry polar bear friend at the Moscow Zoo is having a post-Christmas crisis of his own. Somebody bring him a candy cane, stat!...
