How would Polar bear cub be spoken in German? I know Eisbär is polar bear, but can't figure out the proper way to describe the young.

1 Answer 1



A generic term for an infant animal is "das Junge / ein Junges".

  • There are many sources for Eisbärjunges at Google

    @knut -- I tried google, yes it's easy to google the german term, but it's not easy to get to it from an english search. For instance google translate never gave me that no matter what I tried and it gave me stuff I knew was wrong. Feb 25, 2013 at 22:20
  • @DudeOnRock - Thanks for the tip about the generic junges. Feb 25, 2013 at 22:20
