The Knut Show is over

It had to happen some time: Knut is getting bigger by the day, and Berlin's Zoo has decided it's time for him to get used to life without humans. Since Sunday he's in his enclosure on his own, and the daily "show" with keeper Thomas Doerflein has ended. It came as a bit of a shock for Knut too: he spent much of the time searching the enclosure for signs of human life, but eventually gave up and dived into the water.

Fans of cute baby bears shouldn't be discouraged though: next door you can see Malaysian bear "Ernst", who's just half the size of Knut.
