    PORTLAND, Ore. - Call her Nora the explorer.
     
    The young polar bear that arrived at the Oregon Zoo a few months ago, enjoyed a day frolicking in the snow during a winter storm in Portland. A YouTube video shows the 13-month old bear playing and checking out the snow and the sights in her new home. Nora was born in Ohio last November at the Columbus Zoo and was moved to Portland in October.
     
    Nora peeks at a hammock, tries climbing into it and generally has a good time while playing in the Oregon snow for the first time.
     
    “She's been very playful,” Nicole Nicassio-Hiskey, the senior marine animal keeper, told KATU. "It's like having a new puppy on exhibit, she's been a lot of fun to have.”
