The Zoo’s Polar Bear Cub Has Taken His First Steps

And we have the stupefyingly cute video to prove it.

Watch him go! A video posted to the Toronto Zoo’s Facebook page shows us how a young polar bear goes about finding his footing. This furry bundle of adorableness weighs about 4.4 kg—when he was born, he was a mere 700 grams. Born November 9, 2013, the little guy has been out of his incubator for a month, and is now learning to play. He has been gradually prepared for the cold weather in a temperature-controlled environment in the Wildlife Health Centre: the zoo notes that “an air conditioner has been installed for his comfort.” He is further proof (the zoo also recently released a certain clip of a panda enjoying snow) that watching animals enjoy themselves in the cold makes the chilliness a bit more bearable for the rest of us.
