Born on Nov. 6, to mother Aurora, and father Nanuq, the young cub’s name, Nora, is a combination her parents’ names.

Now 3 months old, Nora is still living behind-the-scenes at the zoo’s animal hospital and receiving round the clock feedings every 4 hours, according to its website.

Video obtained Monday shows Nora playing with a zoo camera and holding up a “Hello my name is Nora!” name tag.

Zoo staff decided to hand-rear Nora after her mother took extended breaks from caring for her when she was about a week old.
