Even Polar Bears Need A Little Lovin’

Valentine’s Day may be long past, but the Kansas City Zoo is hoping for love to still be in the air for their six-year-old male Nikita with the introduction of Berlin, a female 17-years his senior.

Zoo officials and local folk are glad to see their beloved Nikita finally have someone to play with in the zoo’s new, state-of-the-art exhibit – and, perhaps, somebody to love (despite the age difference)! You can see for yourself if love blooms between the two on the Nikita Polar Bear Cam here.
