What’s cuter then an adorable polar bear cub? Try TWO adorable polar bear cubs! Double the cuteness! Welcome to the Ouwehand Zoo’s tundra exhibit in Rehen, Netherlands and get ready to meet the “family”.
This live cam overlooks the tundra exhibit at the Ouwehand Zoo in Rehen, Netherlands. Get ready to watch the adorable polar bear cubs play under the watchful eye of their mother, Freedom, and grandmother, Huggies. The cubs, named Akiak (Inuit for “brave”) and Sura (Inuit for “new life”) were born in November 2014.
In the Inuit language, polar bears are referred to as “nanuk” or “pihoqahiak”, which translates to “an animal of great respect” or “the wandering one.” “Tornassuk” is the name for polar bears in Greenland. It means “master of helping spirits”.
