After surviving a near-death experience JUNO the polar bear cub is now feeding six times a day and gaining weight. Her fuzzy white coat is becoming thicker and she now weighs 2.8 kilograms. For a time there it was questionable whether or not she’d survive (her brother had passed away), but thanks to excellent care in the Zoo’s Wildlife Health Centre the tiny bear is doing very well indeed.

As well, the twin panda cubs at the Z00 are now 12 weeks old and thriving. Pictured above – one of the cubs enjoying a good yawn.
