Double happiness in Russia: A polar bear at the zoo gave birth to twins
A rare event occurred at the Novosibirsk Rostislav Shilo Zoo in Russia. Mother polar bear Gerda was born to the twin. The development of the offspring, which the zoo team could not go to, is monitored by cameras.
According to Siberian Times, two polar bear cubs who were born in Novosibirsk Rostislav Shilo Zoo gave happiness to mother bear Gerda and father bear Kai.
Baby polar bears are born with a weight of 600-700 kilograms, and at this stage they are completely helpless. In the first weeks, the mother should not leave the offspring and feed them constantly. Little bears are now 2 and a half months old, mother occasionally comes out of the nest for a few minutes and comes into contact with snow.
"The polar bears live in zoos elsewhere in the world, but it is hard to raise them like this. It is rarely seen that a mother polar bear brings two puppies to the world. It is important that the mother feels peaceful. "
Gerda and daddy bear Kai have been in the zoo since 2008 and their offspring for the third time. First, a female cub named Shilka in 2013 and a male cub named Rostik in 2015.
