The Zoo’s New Polar Bear Cubs Officially “Too Cute”

Anana and her cub are taking baby steps to explore other areas of the maternity den.

The Columbus Zoo & Aquarium has posted an adorable update for their newest polar bear cubs.

“Aurora and her 3-month-old cubs are being introduced to more of the behind-the-scenes yards with sand and sod (slowly growing their world) and they are doing great! They are now eating chow and will sneak a little bit of meat from mom. The twins have been introduced to a few inches of water (coming up to their bellies), and they are huge fans! They will put all four paws in, splash around and stick their snouts in. Afterwards, they like to roll on the sod to dry off! The twins’ sex will be confirmed during their vet wellness check-up in the coming weeks, and both mom and babies will likely be on view in the spring.”

“Can you spot the cub’s molars in the video? The cub’s sex will be confirmed during the vet wellness check-up in the coming weeks, and both mom and baby will remain off-view until spring.” The Zoo wrote in their facebook post.
