A Playdate for the UK’s Lonely Polar Bear

Walker playing in the snow this winter

Being a teenager is always going to have its moments. The best thing to do is to go out with your friends, have a good time, and forget about the growing pains. But what do you do if the teenager in question is a male polar bear? Walker is the only polar bear in the United Kingdom, and he lives at the Highland Wildlife Park in Scotland. Now that he’s a growing boy, and quite a sizeable one at that, he’s too big to play with his keepers but he hasn’t got anyone else to play with either. After making a few enquiries, it looks like Walker has successfully nailed a playdate with Arktos, a four-year old male polar bear who’s currently living in Hannover, Germany. Arktos will be joining Walker at the Highland Wildlife Park where they will keep each other company… and have a great time!
