It seems like only yesterday.
When that fuzzy little polar bear emerged into the world (of captivity, but a miracle no less) he was immediately adored by all. This week, he turned one year old. Even though he celebrated in Germany, you all can join in the fun through this great set of photos.
The U.S Fish and Wildlife Service has issued a proposal to list the polar bear as 'threatened' on the federal register under the U.S. Endangered Species Act, the decision for which will be determined in January 2008.
