Sleep With One Eye Open, Knut

There is a new international polar bear sensation! The yet-unnamed cub at the Tiergarten N├╝rnberg zoo in Germany is so fucking adorable we think we might die. (more photos) She had to be taken away from her mother because Mama Bear kept dropping her and acting strangely, and the other polar bear in the enclosure ate her two offspring.

As long as we're doing Star Wars stuff today, we think she sounds exactly like a taun taun at the end of this video.

In the interest of localizing this story, here is Brookfield's polar bear cub Hudson (previously seen with a pumpkin) playing with a frisbee and frolicking.
