Siku, a Baby Polar Bear, Becomes Internet Sensation [Video]
The internet loves cute animals. Over the holidays, Siku, a baby polar bear in Denmark, became the latest animal sensation for people to ooh-and-ahh over.
Siku is just a month old. The polar bear was born at the Scandinavian Wildlife Park and is being hand-raised by Danish zookeepers. According to the NY Daily News, the zookeepers are raising the cub by hand because its mother doesn’t have enough milk to feed him.
The month-old-polar bear got his first taste of fame this weekend when the zoo posted a video of the young cub stretching and playing. The video has been viewed more than a half million times and Siku’s Facebook page has already gathered thousands of fans.
Here’s the video of Siku.
The Daily Mail reports that Siku, which means “ice” in Greenlandic, is poised to be the next Knut. Knut, a polar bear who was also orphaned at birth, was hand-raised by zookeepers in Berlin. Knut passed away earlier this year.
Do you think Siku is cute enough to become the next Knut?
