Yesterday we were supposed to go to the zoo with Cameron's class. But it was cancelled due to bad weather. This is the polar Bear cub that has recently made the headlines all the way to Australia. His mother abandoned him, and he is being hand raised at the zoo. At the moment, he is not on public display, but as he is a bit older, he will start to come out for a small amount of time during the day. Hopefully by the time we get to the zoo with Cameron's class (after Easter), we will be able to see him too!

Thankyou for confirming he's a boy bear ! The stupid Herald-Sun in Melbourne hept referring to Knut as 'she'. I was told I'm nit-picky just because I pointed out that Knut is a masculine moniker!
