Adorable cub usurps not-as-cute (fully-grown) polar bear Knut Four-month old Flocke — German for snowflake — has until now been kept behind closed doors at Nuremberg zoo and has been hand-reared by zookeepers because of fears her mother might harm her. BERLIN - Never mind the burly polar bear Knut, here's the cute new cub Flocke. With all the fanfare of a movie premiere or record release, Nuremberg city and zoo officials on Tuesday introduced Germany's latest winsome polar bear cub to a public eager for its first live glimpse of her. The furry 4-month-old imp has been tugging at their heartstrings by video and photograph for months. For picture and more story:

Icy, Flocke is such a cutie, thanks for sharing that with us. I saw his little picture on the news articles, he is adorable but then again so was Knut before he grew up. I think they could have given him a different name as Flocke doesn't sound too great. He is cute and I hope he grows up with a slightly better personality than Knut! Still he brings us so much pleasure!
