TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Twin polar bear cubs have made their debut at The Toledo Zoo and are now in display for the first time.
They were named Suka and Sakari earlier this week after a naming contest drew hundreds of votes.
Zoo officials say the cubs should be on display with their mother daily, but could be off exhibit periodically depending on weather conditions and their unique needs.
The zoo says the cubs have an important future as ambassadors for their species, which is endangered and facing dire threats.
