National Zoo's Andean bear cubs

The National Zoo's Andean bear cubs officially have names! Now five months old, the twins are quickly gaining a reputation as little adventurers.


The cubs' father was Nikki, who was humanely euthanized in August of 2012 after a year-long battle with cancer. He bred with Billie Jean in April.
