And now: a polar bear. No, not just any polar bear. Knut. He turned one in December, so he's not a baby anymore, but he's not a grownup, either.
He rolls in the sand!
He shakes himself!
He plays with water! (He didn't swim while I was there - bummer - but splashing is cute, too.)
He likes to have an audience!
He has merchandise!
He sleeps with - are you ready for this? No. No, I don't think you are. it's too cute.
He sleeps WITH HIS PAWS OVER HIS NOSE.
