Baby Bear Cubs Revealed!

After much anticipation, the Smithsonian National Zoo reveals the first pics of their two Andean bear cubs born mid-January. After months of seclusion in their den with Mom, zoo staff finally determined that one of the cubs is male and the other is female. The cubs remain off exhibit as they adjust to the presence of people. Also known as spectacled bears, this species is native to South America and vulnerable to extinction from poaching and habitat destruction.
