It’s a Boy!

This adorable polar bear cub was born last November atย Berlin’s Tierpark Zoo, but until his first checkup this month, zookeepers didn’t know his gender. It took weeks of gaining the mother’s trust before the two could be separated for his exam. Tierpark is now asking the public’s help in choosing a suitable name.

RAWR!
“Quittit that tickles!”

So cute I can’t bear it, Sharon H.

    How about “Heineken”? In honor of his adorable butt.

    Oh, he’s perfect! How does his mama keep his fur so clean?

    Maybe “Snowball” or “Iceberg”? (in German). Or a variant of his mother or father’s name?

        The character of Baymax is a cuddly robot featured in the Disney film “Big Hero 6.” I can see a slight resemblance in the face.

          Ah, thank you. And, yes, I think, knowing what I now know, that it’s a great name for the little bear!

          If they go with that name I hope they make a little armor suit for him to go with it.

    What’s German for Boaty McBoatface?

    • Julie January 23, 2017 / 6:15 pm

      I wish we could could “like” people’s comments!

    • Gigi the cat lady January 23, 2017 / 6:49 pm

      Shouldn’t that be Bearsy McBearface?

    Every polar bear boy reminds of dearly departed Knut, but this little guy especially so. What a cutiepatootie.

    • Murray C. January 23, 2017 / 6:33 pm

      YES, dear little Knut. This little guy is adorable, sweet little ferociousness.

    In that first pic he’s doing a good imitation of a stuffie, so…”Gund”?๐Ÿ˜‰ Although I do like Baymax also, but that might be too American.

    Gunther. He looks like a Gunther.

    The first thing that came to mind was “Cuddles”, but by the end of the year it would not seem appropriate given his bulk. Maybe Cuddles McFearsome? ๐Ÿ™‚
