For the first time last week, mama Polar Bear "Malik" coaxed her three month old cub out of their cozy den for a little outdoor adventure at Denmark's Aalborg Zoo. Since Zoo veterinarians have not yet been able to safely examine the cub, the sex is still undetermined. In the wild Polar Bears most often hunt along the edges of sea ice. Unfortunately global warming threatens the bears' habitat and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has classified the Polar Bear as vulnerable to extinction.
