Three polar bear cubs were born in the Ouwehands Zoo in Rhenen on Saturday, November 22nd. 

The birth of triplets in a polar bear is unique and raring them is even more rare. The growth and development of the cubs is being monitored closely through camera images.

In the coming months mother Freedom and her cubs will stay in the polar bear nursery where they can be viewed via live image streaming on the zoo's website. The expectation is that Freedom and her cubs will go outside for the first time in the spring of 2015.
