Happy 1st Birthday Knut!

Baby polar bear Knut was born at the Berlin Zoo a year ago today, along with a brother who died within four days of birth. The mother bear was missing the nurturing instinct and abandoned the cub, who was reared by humans. Knut has become a celebrity in Germany, where Knut mania reigns. I can see why:

Happy belated Day Of The Ninja!

I didn't think that was a polar bear when I first saw it. I swear to god I thought it was a kitten. I seriously need glasses.

He's so cute.
I wonder how can his fake parents re-socialize him once he's grown up enough.
I would not trust a bear at no circumstances.
He's small and cute and all, but he's definitely has to go away from a human family.

BTW, Anniina, please take a look at my site: The Take a Close Look contest, with 10 rounds have ended and please collect your virtual award!!! You've been given one !!!

The temptation to make an inappropriate pun on this is damn near overwhelming.

But I am more mature than that (but not by much).
