Kansas City Zoo Live Cam, Polar Bear, USA
Kansas City Zoo Live Cam, This exhibit opened on August 8, 2010, with the introduction of a polar bear named Nikita, who was given to the Kansas City Zoo by the Toledo Zoo. The $10 million exhibit features a 140,000 US gallons (530,000 l) pool serviced by a massive waterfall, multiple indoor and outdoor viewing angles with 2.25-inch-thick (57 mm) glass windows, and space for up to two additional polar bears. In early 2013, a second polar bear was added to the exhibit, a female named Berlin, who was loaned to the zoo from Duluth, Minnesota’s Lake Superior Zoo in hopes that the two bears would breed. At the end of 2015, Nikita was transferred from the zoo to the North Carolina Zoo for breeding purposes.
