Meet little Henry, Sea World’s curious polar bear cub. The 19 week old cub made his public debut in the theme park’s new $1.5 million “polar preschool” at Polar Bear Shores on Saturday. See our article below on how we can help you get there with our Theme Park Transfers!
The inquisitive little cub was named after Henry Hudson, the explorer who discovered Hudson Bay in Canada. It was in honour of his Canadian links where dad Nelson and uncle Hudson hailed from as orphaned bears.
Henry and mum tested out the new exhibit on Thursday with the little cub racing up onto the rocks and then running back to his watchful mum. The cub is never too far from mum as she has chastised him a few times for going too far away. He is adventurous but occasionally he gets startled and will go racing back to mum. He has been described as being like a five year old on red cordial all the time – he goes hard then he goes back to the den for a 30 minute power nap.
Henry has been learning to swim in a shallow pool but had no qualms about launching into the deep pool at the new enclosure, being led around on mum’s paw. His mum is very protective but when he got out of the pool she grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and pushed him back. She even put her paw on his head and lightly pushed him under the water – as is if she was telling him she wasn’t finished teaching him.
