Model Of Knut The Polar Bear Goes On Display At Natural History Museum In Berlin
BERLIN, GERMANY - FEBRUARY 16: Visitors photograph a model of Knut the polar bear, that features Knut's original fur, on the first day it was displayed to the public at the Natural History Museum on February 16, 2013 in Berlin, Germany. Though Knut, the world-famous polar bear from the Berlin zoo abandoned by his mother and ultimately immortalized as a cartoon film character, stuffed toys, and more temporarily as a gummy bear, died two years ago, he will live on additionally as a partially-taxidermied specimen in the museum. Until March 15, the dermoplastic model of the bear will be on display before it joins the museum's archive, though visitors can see it once again as part of a permanent exhibition that begins in 2014.
