It’s been 5 years now since our beloved male polar bear Nikita left the KC Zoo. The Kansas City Zoo has announced that it will be receiving a new male polar bear later this month. Nuniq (pronounced new-nick) should be available for public viewing sometime in November.
Nuniq currently weighs in at 1,045 pounds and is just 4 years old. He will be coming to us from the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, Wisconsin. You can learn more about visiting hours and COVID-19 protocols on the Kansas City Zoo website here.
