Polar Bear Twins Story

Since their introduction to the public, the cubs have become the darlings of Murayama and this fascinating documentary follows the early lives of these delightful youngsters.  Raising polar bears is no easy task and we’re offered an unprecedented glimpse into how the dedicated staff provides the very best of care.   And with two healthy young cubs, the zoo is looking forward to an exciting future where Ikor and Kiroru may present offspring of their very own.....
