This Polar Bear Cub Taking Her First Steps And Winking At The Camera Is The Cutest Thing Ever

This adorable polar bear cub might be only 14-weeks-old, but she already has plenty of charm. Pictures taken last Friday at the Hellabrunn Zoo in Munich show the little baby bear jumping on the rocks, playing hide-and-seek, enjoying some pretzels and bravely exploring the surroundings without the slightest sign of timidness. Oh, and at some point, the cute bear even winks at the camera!

The newborn bear cub is the third child of 10-year-old mamma bear Giovanna, who gave birth to twins named Nela and Nobby three years ago. Both of the polar bear cubs left the zoo in 2016, with Nela ending up in The Netherlands and Nobby going to Doncaster. Now all Giovanna’s attention is on the little one, who hasn’t been named yet.

“We are delighted to see the day-to-day progress of the bear cub,” said the zoo’s director Rasem Baban. “For Giovanna, the real work as a bear mom now begins as she will have to keep an eye on the little one. But even this she will manage with no problem.”

“[The little cub] is in great shape and full of energy, and weighs an impressive 8.4 kilos (about 18-pounds).”

Check out the cute photos of this adorable bear cub below!
