Yesterday the polar bear population grew by two!
Aurora, a polar bear and new mother at Columbus Zoo, gave birth to twins Monday. The cubs, who will one day grow to majestic size, weigh only one pound at birth. Tom Stalf, president and CEO of the Columbus Zoo likened their size to a stick of butter. Awe!
The Facebook video of the event has been shared on Facebook more than 2,000 times!
Behold, the glory of polar bear birth!
