Toronto Zoo Has Hope for Remaining Polar Bear Cub


On October 16, three tiny Polar Bear cubs were born at Toronto Zoo to 10 year-old female Polar Bear Aurora. Typically, Polar Bear births occur in November and early December, so this birth is perhaps the earliest captive birth on record. Sadly, two of the three cubs did not survive the first 48 hours after their birth.

The remaining male cub was taken into intensive care where he'll receive round the clock veterinarian care until it is established that he is thriving and growing.

Aurora, the cub's mother, remains on exhibit in the Tundra Trek at the zoo with twin female Nikita and male Inukshuk.
