Here are some photos and a video of Crystal introducing her baby boy Borealis – called Bo by the keepers – to the visitors.

Just like all cubbies Bo was very curious to see the world outside the den. However, the big world can even be a little scary for a little boy.

Mama Crystal encouraged her son with tender hugs and kisses.

Side by side the mother and the son took their first walk outdoors.

This green stuff is very nice …..

  1. Liebe Mervi,

    es ist eine ganz zauberhafte Idee des Zoos, die ersten Schritte des Bärchen in Zeitlupe zu zeigen.
    Die großen und verwunderten Kulleraugen über die neue Welt sind oberniedlich und lösen
    fast einen Zuckerschockbei mir aus.

    Vielen Dank fürs Zeigen und liebe Grüße!

  2. Dear Mervi!
    It´s quite understandable visitors are charmed by this sweetheart!
    Everyone who watches this little darling must fall in love with him immediately.
    I loved the video!
    What a cute and brave explorer Bo is during his first excursion into the outdoor area. How good that his loving mother is at his side and encourages him.
    Amazing that he loves the wet element from the beginning and did not hesitate to go into the water.

    I like the short name Bo better than Borealis.

    Thank you for this delighting article!


  3. Dear Mervi!
    Bo is a very cute boy. The video is wonderful.

  4. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to Crystal and Bo.

  5. Oh no! – even more sweeties in the polar bear world!

    How on earth should we/I still be able to take apart all the zoos, adult polar bear females and males and their cubbies or even all their names?

    But i have to admit it would have been a shame not to get the chance to get introduced this charming mother and her over-cute cub with the nice name ‘BO’. . . . Lovely pictures and a lovely video alike!

    Thanks to THE TOLEDO ZOO and to MERVI.

  6. Mervi Thanks for bringing this lovely cub to us.
    I hope you wont mind me adding a link to Molly Merrow’s wonderful background note about Bo’s birth

  7. Liebe Mervi,

    ich finde die Aufnahmen in Zeitlupe auch sehr schön.
    Das sind sehr schöne Fotos . Das schönste Foto ist für mich diesmal das letzte von der kleinen Sandschnute.

    Danke fürs Zeigen

    Liebe Grüße

  8. Liebe Mervi,
    mir gefällt der Name für diesen kleinen Eisbären, Borealis das merkt man sich.
    Und natürlich ist auch dieser kleine Bär an Niedlichkeit nicht zu übertreffen.
    Vielen Dank für die Bilder und Infos.
    Liebe Grüße Moni K
