    A 5-month-old female polar bear cub has made quite a playful debut at an Ohio zoo.

    The cub born in early November frolicked around her enclosure Friday at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and even got an orange traffic cone stuck on her head for a moment.

    About 1,000 people lined up to get the first glimpses of the polar bear, named Nora. The cub provided a lot of entertainment and laughter as she swam and bounded around her enclosure.

    The cub's twin died shortly after birth, and she has been hand-reared since her mother began neglecting her.
