More on that behbeh polar bear...

I guess she's not going by the name "Knut Numero Dos", but "Flocke" or Snowflake.

Ahhnnnnggghh. Tongueitude.


Dorothee B., her eyes look like little tildes.  ~ ~

this one is soooo sad though. Her sibblings are thought to have been eaten by their mom. :-(

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 12:20 AM

Awww, she looks like a puppy.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 12:39 AM

Wow. Nature is cruel and stunning. Glad this behbeh lived.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 12:52 AM

And the Republicans are ruining the environment why????? Damn global warming, high-freakin-five to the polar bears!!!

Hey, my morning (German) paper (11. Feb.) says you can still send in suggestions for a name at a new zoo polar bear website www.eisbaer.nuernberg.de. No, this mother didn't eat any siblings of this bear cub, that was a different bear. The comments (Claudie) at the previous entry say it all.
By the way, Flocke is flake, but I guess as a polar bear name one might automatically think snowflake (Schneeflocke). And Germans have turned Knut into a verb, one news article title was "There's been knuting at the Nuremberg zoo". To knut: the production of cute baby animals. I also saw a ranking of various baby animals according to their "Knut-factor". How about "to knut" as a general term for being engagingly cute? Aw, he just knuted his way into my heart. (But then he turned into a big heavy, clawed and sharp toothed beast.)

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 01:07 AM

The very idea of that verb is Knutty!

I think Tilde would be a nice name for a girl cub.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 02:40 AM

she's gona be Knut's wife!!!!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 03:06 AM

Cute little pink tongue...

Holy Cuteness
 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 03:56 AM

The date of the paper is of course 11.Jan., not 11.Feb.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 04:26 AM

This bebbeh is soch a tiiny bebbeh its earzes are still folded up so 'most hardly can't seez dem. But soch cuuute tiiny bebbeh earzes! I bet deyz very soft... I mebbe can haz bebbeh bear earzes monsches?

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 05:14 AM

I must be having a CO overload! I'm usually very picky about grammar and spelling! The bear got to me. Oh, well...

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 05:16 AM

BEBEH BEAR... just a tiny bear... ahgn... *dies*

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 05:58 AM

Kiki: Naughty! No neebles, just leetle teensy keeses of the tongue.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 06:33 AM

When I see my anipals with their tongues out like this, I don't think of neebling. I have to lightly touch it with the tip of my finger. No, don't ask why, because I have no excuse for my behaviour.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:25 AM

oh that baby needs to be in my arms right now!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:28 AM

Brinn, we are sisters in tongue touching. I like it because it's all dry and rubbery!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:44 AM

And pink!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:45 AM

Maybe we should call her "Mytilda Ms. Snowypants"

; )

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 08:00 AM

Tongue neeblage? Ewww. Tongue pokage? Oh yeah.

*lightly pokes at lil pink tongue*

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 08:05 AM

when my big brute gets really content his tongue makes an appearance while he purrs like a freight train.

I then start to sing:

"Little pink tongue! Little pink tongue! LITTLE PINK TONGUE!!!!"

I think he hates me for that song.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 08:06 AM

:) It's good to know I'm not alone in my weirdness.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 08:07 AM

it's a baby Falkor!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 08:16 AM

Cephi: I love you Neverendingly for that comment. Although now I have a theme-song earworm.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 08:24 AM

Knut + Nürnberg = Knürt!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 08:26 AM

Another Knut girl born in Nürnberg? Rumour goes around that the name may be KNÜRT .... (or does that sound like a product from Ikea?)

Another confessed tongue-toucher here (raises hand). My kittehs sometimes forget to put theirs' away when they have finished using them.
I must say, please, no, not another naming contest. My nerves can't handle it.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 09:03 AM

When I first saw the photo, (before reading) I was thinking OMG! that is the cutest PUPPY...

(forehead smack here)

My dear grandma would see one of us kids stick out a tounge, or have a tounge hanging out (in concentration) and say "I'm going to make a sandwhich."
and maybe even grab the tounge...

At the deli, her fave was the beef toungue sandwhich.

can't spell, too sniffly to care. *cough, wheeze*

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 09:15 AM

Hand in air with all the other tongue touchers. However, I tend to wiggle the tip up and down with my finger tip....sigh...

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 09:47 AM

Yahoo! Already named her "The Future Mrs. Knut" Ain't that just cute? Awwwww.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 10:06 AM

btw...Polar Bears are drowning up North in record number because of thawing ice shelves. Global Warming is killing the little guys Moms...so DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR THE PLANET!! Don't buy SUVs and stupid Hummers that put out tons of CO2 and Recycle and Reuse. Or the only place you'll see Polar Bears in the future are chained and gaged in a human prison called the Zoo and Blogs. Our children will only be able to view these creatures in confined cell instead of in nature. Is that what you want for your little guy and this one in the pic.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 10:25 AM

rosieLB, big brute may hate you for the song, but I love you for it! :D

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 10:34 AM

Schneeflocke is an awesome name, but I think we should call it Dharma, as a little tribute to Lost....

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 11:12 AM

he looks all tuckered out.

he's all "pffbllthbhthhh"

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 11:13 AM

How do I get a gig as a polar bear cub mama?

(Starts researching zoo jobs)

A thinker
 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 11:58 AM

She's so very tired. Poor bebe. Perhaps she has a delicate constitution and would like a delicate name. Somthing dreamy like Chiovann Nicole Kidman PrettyBear... Or something creamy like "Cool Whip - Cute Tongue".

Knut reminds me of a rough and tough old football player from the 40's - Knut Rockne. Not that I was there.... But I do know that Knut does rhyme with cute.

Or.. the Sweetest Icing on The Cake.
Icing Pola - Beh might be good. Or My-Tilda Icing. My-Tilda Icing sounds fancy, fine and delicate.

I got "The softest bathrobe in the world" at BB&Beyond after christmas sale that looks just like that beh-beh. That woman should wear softer gloves for such a delicate flower.

how 'bout
"Ms. Cupcake McSnowybutt"

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 12:33 PM

I live in Germany and little 'Flocke' is soo cute! :)


This is her official homepage! Flocke is a female polar bear. German people can send in name suggestions, isn't that sweet? (Flocke is just a temporary name). I suggested 'Emma'.

check out the Dr. at the zoo, he kind of looks like the beh-beh bear. Matchinks!


 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 12:59 PM

Little bear looks so firsty with her tongue out. Somebody give her a sip of milk, please.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 01:12 PM

The eensy teensy white ear,the leetle rose-petal tongue! I want...so moishe.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 02:07 PM

Christina, thanks for the link. It's cool that they're accepting suggestions for the "Eisbärname" (Only in Germany would you find a word for "polar bear name" - though I doubt it's found in dictionaries :P), but I think Flocke is such a cute name already! Can only Germans submit suggestions..? I think I'll try anyway. (When I come up with a good one, that is.)

Also, as a still-learning and not-quite-fluent German speaker, I keep reading "Eisbär" and thinking of an ice cream bear. XD

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 02:31 PM

Oh little bear cub
with your tongue so pink
I am awed by your cuteness
and just can't think.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 03:17 PM

My name is DebG and I've been touching or flicking tongues for about 20 years now. When's the next support group meeting? Then can we go to boxhab meetings?

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 03:24 PM

Aw, man.

We are just totally Flocked.
