This morning, the Toronto Zoo (Canada) and the Canadian Armed Forces revealed the name of the zoo's three-month-old female polar bear cub: Juno (born on Remembrance Day).

The name was chosen as a tribute to the Canadian Armed Forces. It comes from Juno Beach where hundreds of Canadian soldiers were killed or wounded during the June 1944 D-Day invasion of German-occupied France during the Second World War.

"We are proud and happy to adopt Juno to the army today, and to promote her immediately to the rank of private," said Brigadier General David Patterson.

"Polar bears are brave, strong, resilient, tenacious, agile and more than capable of defending themselves, just like our Canadian soldiers," said Patterson.

Aurora, Juno's mother, gave birth to two cubs November 11, 2015, but only one survived.

Our Army is competent and adorable! :D :dance:

Glad you like her!

I'll tell the Navy to be on the lookout for a baby beluga needing adoption!

You're right, beluga whales are so cute! :))

Kenny,

I thought you'd like her!

If my memory cells are working properly (big IF!), I think you once posted that you like polar bears.

I'm trying to post another picture of Juno using 'screen shot', but can't recall how I've done that in the past.

Waiter! More coffee for my sleepy brain! :D

Kenny,

Juno has looks and is athletic!

Can she run for President even though she was born in Canada?

Hasn't the whole 'Canadian running for US President' been in the news lately. :think:
