Adorable baby polar bear finally gets a name

- This adorable baby polar bear cub that was caught on video dreaming away at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium now has a name!

After 88,000 votes from all over the world, the adorable fuzzy polar bear's name is "Nora."

In December, the zoo released a video that was shared thousands of times of the then-5-week-old cub appearing to dream as she sleeps. 

The zoo said the mother of the newborn cub stopped caring for her, so the Animal Care staff had to intervene and hand-rear her.

She is doing great, though, now and the zoo continues to post updates about her on Facebook.


Drumroll please… the polar bear cub’s name is NORA! Thank you to everyone who voted. We received more than 88,000 votes...
