Polar Bear Swimming Video

April 6th, 2010

Why are swimming polar bears so cute? I know these bears are not pets.

Perhaps the cuteness stems from the way their fur ripples underwater. Plus, those polar paw pads!

This very short video was taken at my local zoo. Enjoy, and read about the conservation status of polar bears (and the global warming connection) at Polar Bears International.

Do you find polar bears swimming cute too?

The title says it all. This giant panda happily eating away will make you smile!

I took this video at my local zoo recently on a chilly spring day. The nice thing about chilly days at the zoo? It’s not busy, so I was able to get this without anyone running in front of the glass.

Enjoy, and please think about supporting your local zoo. A zoo membership would make a great gift this spring.
