TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - A female polar bear cub born at Ohio’s Toledo Zoo has met her fans.

The cub named Hope made her public debut Friday, swimming in an enclosure as visitors snapped photos with their cellphones and cameras.

She was born in December to a 16-year-old bear named Crystal.

Hope is the seventh polar bear cub born at the zoo since 2006. Crystal gave birth to twins in November 2012.

Polar bear cubs in the wild typically stay secluded with their mothers until they reach 20 to 30 pounds.
