Meet Juno, the Toronto Zoo's Adorable Baby Polar Bear

International Polar Bear Day is February 27th... Just in time for the Toronto Zoo to give their adorable baby a name.

Meet Juno, the zoo's three-month old polar bear cub. Officials chose the name Juno as a tribute to the Canadian Armed Forces. It commemorates Juno Beach in northern France where Canadian troops landed during the D-Day invasion in June 1944.

At first, the cub was given the name as a nickname. But zoo staff said in a statement they have "made this name official as it embodies Canadian pride and is representative of polar bears, one of Canada's national treasures."
