Brumas: Brumas was the first Polar Bear to be born at the ZSL London Zoo (1949?). “He” was said to be a male, but it was later confirmed that she was in fact a female. However, the public was not informed of this “sex-change” for several months. Brumas was named after the two keepers, BRUce and SAM. Attendance at the zoo soared as a result of “his” appearance, and in his first year reached 3,000,000a figure that has yet to be topped.
