The unnamed cub swam around the enclosure with its mom, Anana, but twin cubs born to Aurora are not yet ready to be on display.

The three births within a month at the same facility marks an unprecedented accomplishment for the Columbus Zoo since Anana and Aurora’s three cubs were the only polar bears to be born in a North America zoo in 2016.
