Hard to believe such a tiny little thing grows into such a huge bear.

I wonder if the stress of zoo captivity is what caused the mother to eat her young? I am glad the little one was saved, but I worry for his future. Look what happened to poor Knut. He grew up, was not cute and cuddly any more and the zoo wanted to get rid of him.

I am not so sure "Flake" is a great name for anyone except maybe some of my co-workers!

that is a beautiful name. It is sad to see the polar bears becoming fewer and fewer.

Of course the mama polar bear was distressed - she is in a cage far away from her natural habitat. It's nice the zoo keepers saved Flocke but I just wish they wouldn't have her kind behind bars.

I hope she doesn't turn into the publicity hound that Knut did.

Maybe the zoos need to put Flocke and Knut together in a World Class Zoo someplace to care for them. And if they are allowed to breed, step in before cannibalism becomes a problem again. With only 25000 polar bears in the world, each one is important to the species survival..

That is a cute name! She weighs 7lbs. That is how much my Morkie weighs except she will not be getting as big as he will be. I am glad that she is healthy and doing fine!!!

His siblings were eaten by his mother? How horrific.

Flocke is precious though and even more so in videos...

Make sure they have a plan about her future, and keep her in contact with other polar bears. We wouldn't want another Knut problem.

With humans destroying animal natural habitats, it's only fair we step in to save them once in a while.
