The Philadelphia Zoo had a big reveal last week. Its baby sloth bear ventured outside for the first time. Social media followers could watch as the 3-month-old, the first healthy cub at the zoo in 23 years, ambled around its log-filled yard with mom Kayla.
Zoos around the world have had similar moments in the past month with monkeys, an elephant, a Bengal tiger and three litters of polar bears. As most zoos are closed because of the coronavirus outbreak, we thought readers might enjoy a peek at these little fuzzballs. We hope the photos make the wait until zoos reopen a bit more bearable.
