Meet Nora, the adorable polar bear cub who is capturing the hearts of people all over the world as a video of her first 83 days goes viral.
The three-month-old has become a net sensation after Columbus Zoo in Ohio released a video of her growing up in a bid to find her a name.
The Zoo launched an appeal online to find a name for the polar bear cub and received more than 88,000 votes from across 115 countries.
The winning entry was Nora, a combination of her parents’ names, Nanuq and Aurora.
“Everyone here is very excited not only about the birth of Nora but now that she has a name," Carrie Pratt, curator of the Zoo’s North America and Polar Frontier regions, said in an interview with Yahoo News.
"All of the names that were up for a vote were chosen by zoo staff, and then we left it to the rest of the world to help us name her."
To celebrate her arrival, the Zoo released an online video which documents the first 83 days of Nora's life as a fluffy polar bear cub.
