Watch: Polar bear cub ventures outside to explore for the first time
The visiting public will be able to see the young cub for the first time on Saturday.
A polar bear born at a German zoo has ventured outside to explore for the first time.
The unnamed female cub was born on December 1 but had remained inside under the close scrutiny of keepers at Tierpark Berlin until now.
“Today is an extremely special day for the entire team here at Tierpark Berlin,” said Zoo and Tierpark director Dr Andreas Knieriem. “After months of nervous waiting and crossing our fingers, I can hardly put the feeling of relief into words.
The young cub took the opportunity to explore the new landscape, clambering over rocks and splashing around in the pool.
Visitors hoping to catch a glimpse of the cub are warned that, while she will be on display from Saturday, she will only be on view to the public for a few hours at a time to avoid tiring her out too much.
