BERLIN (AP) - The Munich zoo's 14-week-old polar bear twins don't yet have names, but they're already stars.

The tiny cubs - one male, one female - were greeted by nearly 100 reporters as they skipped across their enclosure during their first public appearance Wednesday.

The still unnamed cubs were born on Dec. 9 and made their first outing under the watchful eye of their mother, Giovanna.

"She is only 7 years old, so she is a very young mother and everything is excellent," said the zoo's Polar World head, Helmut Kern.

They all live separately from their father Yogi, who was temporarily relocated to Stuttgart zoo earlier this month.

Any attempt at a family reunion is deemed risky as adult male polar bears occasionally kill polar bear cubs.
