These Bears Are Ready for Company!

Two new polar bears made their public debut at the Maryland Zoo today.

The bears, Neva and Amelia Gray, are half-sisters and rather adorable additions to the zoo family.

They arrived from the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium last month and have finished their mandatory quarantine period. That means the bears, which were both born in November 2016, can now receive visitors.

Fun conservation fact: The two bears and Neva’s twin brother, Nuniq, were the only polar bear cubs born at a North American zoo that year.
