The Buffalo Zoo's two famous polar bear cubs, Luna and Kali, will be temporary off exhibit beginning today. The zoo is moving the cubs to a different area of the park in order to relocate them to a larger exhibit space.

Zoo officials expect the cubs will take about a week to adjust to their new holding area. After that time, the cubs will be back on exhibit in the zoo's current tiger exhibit. The tigers, which are a nocturnal species, will take turns on the exhibit with the cubs, and will have access to the exhibit in the evening and overnight.

The Buffalo Zoo will announce when the cubs are on exhibit in their new space. Anyone who plans to visit the zoo to see a specific animal is encouraged to call the zoo before visiting (716-837-3900).

The Buffalo Zoo is located at 300 Parkside Ave.
