Winter is here. In some parts of the United States, that means snow. While I tend to hide inside when white flakes start falling, this baby polar bear at the Oregon Zoo couldn’t be more excited!
One-year-old Nora the polar bear was born in Ohio at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Sadly, she was abandoned by her mother shortly after birth. Zookeepers moved her to the Oregon Zoo in Portland to grow up with a 31-year-old female polar bear named Tasul, but she died of cancer last month.
Nora’s young life has been filled with tragedy, but you wouldn’t know it by watching her play in the snow. As the 200-pound cub frolics in her enclosure, it’s clear to see that she’s truly in her element!
Watch as Nora experiences snow for the very first time. She’s so enthusiastic, even I’m looking forward to a snowy day now!
What a sweet bear! Be sure to share this video with anyone you know who hates snow. Maybe once they see how much fun Nora is having, they’ll give it another chance!
