Little Siku Grows Up in the Sunshine

Jun 14 2012 - 4:00am

You may not think of polar bears as a summertime animal, and it's true that these Arctic creatures must adapt [1] as the weather warms and their habitat dramatically retreats. But for one little polar bear, the sun's rays mean a new world to explore as the ice melts away from his home in the Scandinavian Wildlife Park. It's been awhile since we checked in on Siku the orphaned cub [2], but it appears he's been keeping himself busy over the last few months and growing bigger (but staying cute!) along the way. Here's a roundup of our favorite Siku photos to get your weekend off to a great start!
