Cute polar bear makes debut at New York zoo
'Luna' will be formally named in Facebook contest
A fluffy white polar bear cub has been unveiled at a zoo in New York.

The zoo will hold a naming contest on its Facebook page but, until then, she has been nicknamed 'Luna'.
She was born on November 27, weighing 1.5lbs, though she now weighs in at 23lbs, and was unveiled as the zoo announced the next phase of fundraising for a new £12 million polar bear exhibit. they still need about £2.6.
The zoo says it is one of only two zoos in North America to have polar bear births in 2012.
The cub is still too small to exhibit but she is visible via closed-circuit television at the zoo on weekday afternoons.
