Loving Polar Bear Mama Playing With Her Baby For The First Time
This is the heartwarming moment a polar bear mother and her tiny cub play in the snow for the very first time. The pair step out on the snow after spending the last few months in the den. Their beautiful moment of joy was captured on camera!
One of the largest zoos of Novosibirsk, Russia became a really happy place once a long-awaited wonder, the polar bear, came into this world. Polar bears are the largest ᴘʀᴇᴅᴀᴛᴏʀs on the planet that re-produce once every two or three years, and in an unnatural habitat even more ʀᴀʀᴇʟʏ. On the 7th of December 2015 happy white bear parents, Kay and Gerda gave birth to their second cub. The cute bear was born absolutely hairless and helpless. The cub spends the first months of life together with its mother in the den until it gets stronger. It is impossible to determine the cub`s gender yet, so it is too early to give this wild animal a name. This tiny snow bear opened its eyes, and its ears went up. This sweet creature has a good appetite and is gaining weight well. Dad is not allowed to the young one and the mother because the staff fears the male`s unpredictable reaction. So Kay will be kept ɪsᴏʟᴀᴛᴇᴅ in another enclosure for a year.
In the first months after birth, polar bear cubs are extremely helpless, so they rely on their moms 100%. The mother and the cubs not even leave the den, until the little ones are strong enough. In this particular situation, the cub is already a few months old, so the stuff allowed it and its mom to get some fresh air. Although strong enough to play in the snow, the cub will still have to stay alongside its mom for a few more months. The cub’s dad, Kay is not allowed, yet, around the baby nor the mother. His reactions may be pretty unpredictable, so the staff take no ʀɪsᴋs.
Once the cute bear grew a bit older, it and its mother are let out from the den into the fresh air for the first time. The little thing is enjoying the first snow in its life. It studies the world with caution but at the same time has fun playing with its mother. Cautious at first upon seeing so much snow, the curious cub immediately started to explore the surroundings. Under the supervision of its mom, of course!
