A cuddly three-month-old polar bear was the belle of the ball as she was introduced to the media for the first time at Buffalo Zoo in upstate New York Friday.

The fluffy debutante, her fur like soft, snow-white dawn, was placed in a makeshift enclosure, where she purred in apparent content after being bottle-fed by veterinary technician Alice Rochauer.

The young bear has been nicknamed Luna, but the zoo will hold a naming contest on its Facebook page. There will also be a camera set allowing online users to follow baby Luna as she grows.
