Germany's favorite polar bear celebrates bday

December 5, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
It was a festive day in Berlin as one of the city's most famous furry residents celebrated his birthday. Knut, Germany's favorite polar bear, turned 4 years old Sunday.

In honor of his birthday, Knut got a cake shaped like the number four. The treat sat on top of his present: a bucket of fish and meat.

Knut was raised at the Berlin Zoo after his mother rejected him and his brother, who died shortly after their birth.

Knut is incredibly popular and everything from toys to mugs to T-shirts bears his image.
