Siku is just one of the Polar Bears you can see at Louisville Zoo’s Glacier Run!
If you know much about me, you know that I love animals with a passion as huge as the universe. Polar bears are such a great love of mine that it’s a wonder I haven’t found a way to own one. Dang Kentucky weather!
The beauty pictured above is one of the gorgeous polar bears at the Louisville Zoo’s Glacier Run. His name is Siku. Siku was born December 3, 2009 at the Toledo Zoo. He relocated to Louisville in September 2011. I guess he’d heard great things about Southern hospitality. Siku, who’s name means ice in the Iupiaq language, had his own private swimming pool within 30 minutes of arriving at the Louisville Zoo.
Arki, Siku’s grandmother, is also at the Louisville Zoo’s Glacier Run. Arki is a 26 year-old female polar bear. But she doesn’t look a day over 6. You can tell her I said so.
To learn more about the Louisville Zoo’s remarkable Glacier Run and the Polar Bears they’re so proud to house, visit the Louisville Zoo soon… and often. In the meantime, you can learn more on the Polar Bear section of Louisville Zoo’s homepage.
As Kentuckians, we can take a great deal of pride in the amazing Louisville Zoo. It’s one of the best in the country and is right here at home!
