ST. PAUL, MN (AP) - A polar bear displaced by flooding at Duluth's Lake Superior Zoo can now be seen at Como Zoo in St. Paul.

Berlin recently joined Buzz and Neil in their outdoor public habitat, the Polar Bear Odyssey Exhibit.
 
Torrential rain flooded Berlin's home in Duluth in June. She was quarantined for 30 days and then introduced behind-the-scenes to the other bears at Como.
 
Since Buzz and Neil are both neutered males, breeding is not possible.
 
The St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/SjAjE3) reports Berlin is joined by two harbor seals from Duluth, Feisty and Vivian. The seals are on display at the Aquatic Animal Building.
 
Zoo officials say it's not known how long the animals will stay in St. Paul.
