An adorable 3 month old polar bear cub has made its debut at a zoo in Buffalo, New York. The Associated Press reported that the cub was introduced on Friday to the pubic at the Buffalo Zoo.

The zoo is only one of two zoos in all of North America to have polar bear births in 2012. They recently announced fundraising for a new $18 million polar bear exhibit and they are still need of $4 million to start.

The polar bear cub is visible to the public in a closed circuit television at the zoo during weekday afternoons but is still too tiny to exhibit.

"The cub was born on November 27th to mother Anana, sired by Nanuq, and has been hand raised by the Zoo's veterinary technician and keeper staff.

Though the cub is currently too small to go on exhibit for the public, she will be visible on a closed-circuit television in the Zoo's M&T Bank Rainforest Falls Monday through Friday from 12 p.m. until 3.p.m. The Zoo will also post regular updates to their website and Facebook page," said the Zoo's website.

"She's really cute right now when she's sleeping," Alice Rohauer who works at the zoo said to ABC affiliate KABC. "She is fun to take care of. She plays a lot more now. She interacts with me a lot more. She plays with toys now so it's fun to watch. She is a handful now but its fun."

When a new animal is born in a zoo it's a joyous occasion for the zoo and the community.

In November, the zoo announced that it had new additions to the zoo including a rhino, giraffe and seven leaf frogs.

"A male giraffe named Moke (mo-key) arrived in Buffalo in September from the Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield, MO. The year-old Rothschild giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis rothschild) was brought to Buffalo to breed with the Zoo's two female reticulated giraffes," said the zoo's website.

"George, a male Asian one-horned rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicornis) is another new Buffalo resident. Owned by the National Zoo in Washington D.C, he came to Buffalo via the Bronx Zoo as part of a cooperative breeding program," the added about the new rhino.
