Germany's apparently become the world's new leading exporter of cute baby polar bear news, pictures, hype, and controversy. Last year it was Berlin's Cute Knut, a sweet little boy. This year, it's Nuremberg's Flocke, a darling little girl.
Here is the news and here is the Nuremberg Zoo's Flocke website. Look at the URL: http://www.eisbaer.nuernberg.de/
She's so sweet and little. The photographs are too cute for words. Plus I just love how the German word means "ice bear." It's so much nicer than "polar bear."
The link, by the way, comes from my Cinema-Mad Sibling.
(And yes, Knut, we haven't forgotten you, poor thing. But he's gotten so big and strong that he's really quite dangerous.)
