  • Description

    Copenhagen Zoo's polar bear "Musee" gave birth to twin cubs last November 28th - a few days ago they made their first public appearance when their keeper brought them out for their first weighing.

    Male-cub "B" and female-cub "P" are the first twins to be born at the Zoo since 1967 - and they weighed-in at 25 kilos (55 pounds) before going for their first swimming lesson in the Zoo pool with "Musse".

    VISNEWS Cameraman Frank Paulsen - who filmed the first-day events - tells us that the names of the cubs are in honour of British Petroleum (B.P.) who are sponsoring the new arrivals in accordance with the Danish Zoo's system by which all the animals are "sponsored" by commercial firms.
