Is Luna the polar bear pregnant?

That appears to be a question a lot of folks are asking.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Could Luna the polar bear at the Buffalo Zoo be pregnant?

That appears to be a question a lot of folks are asking.

According to the Buffalo Zoo's Facebook page, Luna has not been outside much over the past couple weeks.  Zoo officials say it's because it's 'polar bear denning season'.

Denning is when a pregnant animal makes an area to prepare for birth.

Zoo officials say while there is no real test to determine if a polar bear is pregnant, female polar bears will still 'den up'.
