Ilka, mom to famed polar bear Siku, was in motherly bliss nursing one of her youngest cubs on the Live Cam. We have a highlight video here.

Ilka is mom to Siku and his twin cub siblings. She is 22-years-old and has great maternal instincts, raising her new cubs independently. When not being a mom, she enjoys taking a break to swim and float in her pond. Meet Siku, Ilka and their Polar Bear Family on the Live Cam here.
