One year after the death of Germany's beloved polar bear Knut, a new cub has made its international debut.
Anori a half-sister of Knut emerged from her den at Germany's Wuppertol Zoo for the first time yesterday.
Supervised by her mother Vilma, Anori frolicked in the sunshine to the delight of zoo visitors.
The tiny cub was born on January 4, opened her eyes on month later and took her first steps a month after that.
She spent the first four months of her life indoors, but was finally allowed into an outdoor enclosure yesterday.
Anori seemed to enjoy the change of scenery, romping about with her mother as hundreds of visitors scrambled to take photographs.
Anori is expected to become the zoo's star attraction, like her half-brother Knut was at Berlin Zoo after his birth in 2007.
Knut became an international superstar after his mother rejected him as a newborn, leaving him to be raised by zookeepers.
Hundreds of thousands of people from around the world flocked to Berlin to see the cub, but he sadly died in March 2011 after suffering years of "depression".
Anori's future looks much brighter as she is being raised by her mother.
"The mother cares for the little bear, contrary to Knut, who was raised by human hand," Wuppertol Zoo curator Andre Stadler said.
