TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

For the first time ever the Toledo Zoo's polar bear cubs, Suka and Sakari, are now on display. The cubs went on display at 10 a.m. Friday in the zoo's Arctic Encounter exhibit.

The cubs' names were chosen by area residents in a naming contest which solicited nearly 3,000 entries.

Suka and Sakari were born on November 21, 2012 and are two of just three cubs born in 2012 at North American zoos.

The zoo says the cubs will be on display daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but may be off exhibit periodically depending on their needs or weather conditions.
