Polar Bears Meet and Instantly Become Best Friends


Two polar bears met in the UK and became best friends immediately.

It sounds like a Disney movie but it's better because it's real life. Nobby is new to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. After traveling from Germany he was taking his time settling in to his new digs and enjoying a nice day doing polar bear things.

Nissan, who has been at the park for a year, came over to say hi to the new addition and they pretty much fell in love with each other. They checked each other out, ran around, jumped in their little pond and went for a swim.

Polar bears leave their mothers at around two years old and travel around to find new groups, so this meeting was completely natural and expected for these two.

Ginny woke up and thought about going outside, and that really tired her out, so now she's snuggling up to Ginny Jr until she has enough energy to think about going outside again. Ginny has such a tough life. (If you would like to cuddle clone your pet with @cuddleclones then you can use the code GINNYJRT for 10% off at www.cuddleclones.com!)

That tongue! Meet April! The @NebraskaBorderCollieRescue is fostering her right now, and she nearly licked my face off. She’s got a ton of love and needs someone to show her just the same. Was a pleasure meeting her and her foster family. Follow the link in their profile (@NebraskaBorderCollieRescue) if you’re looking for a border collie to love!
