Polar Bear Vicks

Another card from the Netherlands. Meet Vicks, a polar bear born in Diergaarde Blijdorp in Rotterdam. So Cute!! When the weather gets better I will definitely visit him!

Vicks was born on December 6th 2010 in Rotterdam Zoo. Cubs are born small and helpless. Their size is roughly that of a hamster. They are being fed through the mammal gland in the female’s armpit. Vicks is over 1 year old now, a playful "toddler" almost as large as his mom Olinka.

Distance: 96 km (60 miles)
Travel time: 10 days
