New pictures were released today of the polar bear cub at the zoo in Nuremberg, Germany.

The bear cub opened her eyes for the first time on Tuesday. The cub who is currently nicknamed Flock - meaning flake in German - has yet to be officially named.

The cub is bottle-fed with milk every four hours and weighs about five and a half pounds. Over the weekend the five-week-old cub got her own web page.

The city of Nuremberg has already received suggestions for 22,000 names.
