Adorable Polar Bear Cub Takes First Steps

Adorable Polar Bear Cub Takes First Steps

ADORABLE POLAR BEAR CUB TAKES FIRST STEPS – At Toronto Zoo, Canada in November 2013 a new addition arrived to the zoo in the form of a beautiful baby Polar Bear.

He’s cute, he’s cuddly and incredibly adorable and we at meebal.com simply couldn’t pass up the opportunity of publishing an article with all the pictures and video.

The little fellow weighted in at just 25 ounce (700kg) at birth; which has now ballooned to incredible 9.7lbs (4.4kg).

Zoo staff says that that he’s a healthy cub who is now teething and biting anything he can.  He’s now consuming milk five times a day and learning to lap it up as opposed to suckling from the bottle.

You might be wondering why this Polar Bear cub wasn’t fed by his mother.  The issue was that he was one of three and two of his brothers died within 48 hours of being born.

In the past the mother had a tendency of violence towards her offspring and whilst this wasn’t the case here, staff at the zoo decided they didn’t want to take a chance and are therefore hand-rearing him after noticing he wasn’t feeding properly.

Looks like this is one Polar Bear cub that has found his feet and zoo staff are very confident about his future.
