Victoria’s baby is the first polar bear cub born in UK for 25 years. Now it was time for the proud mother to let her cubbie make it’s first outing.

Of course, Victoria came out to check everything was safe and secure for her baby.

After while a cutest little face was seen at the door.

First the baby bear looked a bit cautious ….

…. but very soon the curiousity won and it started to explore the exciting new world.

What a brave little cubbie!

There was even some snow! – Oh, look at Victoria’s face! Doesn’t she look proud and happy!

The new world may be exciting but being close to mama is still the favourite place.

And, of course, where mama is there is even the milk bar! 🙂

Knuti’s Weekly wishes Victoria and her baby lots of health and happiness! Of course, we wish even the keepers all the best!

  1. Victorias Baby sieht sehr gut aus
    und die Mutter scheint wirklich
    stolz zu sein auf ihr Kind 🙂

    Da wird im Frühjahr und Sommer
    einiges los sein in Kingussie. 🙂
    Das einzige Baby auf der
    Insel will bestaunt werden.

    RALPH – hast Du schon die Koffer gepackt ? ;

  2. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for the update of Victorias little one.

    The baby is a tiny sweetheart beside its mighty mother and everything seems to be OK. Victoria is a loving and caring mum and her cub is certainly well protected. I loved the video!

    I noticed that Victoria has some skin and coat problems too. These problems seem to be widespread among polar bears in captivity.

    I´m keeping my fingers crossed for both of them.


  3. It is good to see Victoria and her little one.
    Her fur may well have suffered from being indoors in straw. Also the weather has changed from cold to mild
    a lot, so she may be still shedding fur.

  4. Liebe Mervi,

    schön, dass wir beim ersten Ausflug ins Freie von Victoria und ihrem süßen Nachwuchs dabei sein können.
    Ganz vorsichtig und neugierig schaut das Kleine in die Welt.

    Ich wünsche Victoria und ihrem Baby alles Gute.

    Liebe Grüße

  5. Dear Mervi, thanks for showing. Adorable !

    Hugs Inge

  6. Das Kleine ist ja herzallerliebst !!!!
    Vielen Dank, liebe Mervi


  7. Liebe Mervi!
