Celebrating The Beary Important International Polar Bear Day

February is coming to an end, and it's time to celebrate one of our favorite days ever - international polar bear day. Why do we love it so much? Well, because we love polar bears, of course. They are so cute, so fluffy, they are a vulnerable animal species whose population is decreasing, and polar bear day is the best day to bring some awareness to the struggles facing this animal. As well as look at super adorable pics of them

If any of you love polar bears as much as we do and want to help with the conservation effort of these huge teddy bears, consider going to Polar Bears International and learning about them as well as donating to help keep them safe and happy. Have a beary happy polar bear day, everyone!

Twitter Having A Blast With The 'River Bear' Trend (Viral Tweets)

Well, well, another day on twitter, another adorable animal goes viral, and you would never expect it to be this one. A bear in a river. That's right. You hear that ad may not think anything of it, but my gosh, that bear is the cutest bear that we've ever seen (and that's despite the fact that all bears are totally adorable), and we are not even slightly surprised that the internet went crazy over it. 

It's so cute, it inspired endless artists to create adorable versions of the bear themselves, and we felt the need to give them all (and the bear) some love. So, enjoy this adorable fluffball in all of its versions, and have a pawtasitc weekend!

Pawdorable Bear Cubs Climbing Up Trees

Us humans take months, sometimes over a year to take our first steps, while many animals only ever take a couple minutes. But some animal babies are capable of even more than that, like these tiny totally safe-to-cuddle bear cubs who have already perfected the art of climbing trees at their tini-tiny age. 

It's an experience every tiny bear cub will go through at some point in their lives, and not only is it insanely impressive, it is also incredibly cute. So, take a look at these pawdoable bear cubs taking their first steps (up a tree) with their mommies there to help and protect them and enjoy your heart melting of cute.

How are pandas so ridiculously cute ALL the time? Seriously, everything we've ever seen a panda do is either adorable, ridiculous, or both! Most of the time it's both. They are just ridiculously cute. Pandas act as if they are little toddlers dressed up in a bear suit and we will always watch everything shenanigans they get themselves into! 

Panda nannies are living the life dealing with those fluffy drunken toddlers. Did you know it's a real professional and one where you make 32 a year? Oh, plus meals and transit, and accommodations. Oh, and you're also required to send 365 days with pandas. Talk about a dream!

This panda, named Shuang Shuang is rolling around in an attempt to grab his nanny's attention! We know it certainly grabbed ours!

Awwdorably Wholesome Bears Waving Hello

There's a reason that people love bears as much as they do. The myth of the cuddly bear runs strong in our society. I mean, look at them. How can these huge bear-hugging animals be in any way dangerous? They were obviously designed for hugs. Cleary. How can you even argue with that? 

They're the cutest, the sweetest, and they're infinitely polite. Look at them waving! Just look at them, we dare your heart not to melt. It's impossible. It's a total dream to have a bear wave at us (and also give us a hug, but we'll settle for a wave for now). The cuteness is simply overwhelming.

Animals Re-Imagined Without Their Iconic Markings

While all these photoshopped animals do look beautiful either way and some not even odd-looking, we're definitely grateful to live in a world where tigers and zebras have stripes. These animals have color and uniquely beautiful, if you photoshop out those iconic markings, it doesn't dilute their cuteness, but we've obviously come to love and admire these animals individual uniqueness. 

The team at Brightside.me has asked the question, "What would animals look like without their markings?" And then created it for us to help us imagine a world in which animals only come in one shade of color. Safe to say, we all love the animals just as they naturally are!

Celebrating National 'Hug A Bear Day' With Adorable Bear Cub Pics

It's National Hug A Bear Day! And we here at Cheezburger are celebrating! Now, it's important to remember that you should actually go out and hug a bear. That is a bit dangerous at the end of the day, no matter how cute and cuddly bears may appear. 

No, National Hug A Bear Day is actually a day that refers to teddy bears and is meant to celebrate hugging! Yeah, you heard right. On this day, you aren't supposed to go out and hug actual bears. The way to celebrate National Hug A Bear day is by hugging your teddy bear, or by hugging your friend's teddy bear, or giving a big ol' 'bear hug' to one of your friends or family members. 

That doesn't mean that actual bears shouldn't be celebrated, of course, since bears are unbearably awesome. So, since we can't come give y'all bear hugs right now, as a compromise, we've decided to give you an adorable collection of some of the most teddy bear-like looking bear cubs instead.

Alaska's Annual 'Fat Bear Week' Competition Begins

Oh lawd, they comin'

Katmai National Park's annual competition of voting for your favorite chubby bear is back and voting has already begun! Which chubby cubby will win the title this year? 

Every Fall, the 'Fat Bear Week' competition takes place and it's a celebration in which the online community compares photos of bears in Spring and those same bears all chubbed up and getting ready for hibernation! The difference between the photos is often very obvious. And while it's a fun competition to take part in, it's truly all about these amazing bears, their survival, and how we're learning from them. 

For those who might consider this to be body shaming, it's actually all about body positivity. A bear needs to bulk up before winter, or else it won't survive. As the U.S. Department of the Interior says, "A fat bear is a healthy bear!" Bears can lose up to a third of their entire body fat as they hibernate. 

You can vote for your favorite chubby cubby here! And follow Katmai National Park on Twitter for all the updates!

This is just too cute for words! Turns out, bear cubs play just the same as human kids! They'll climb, rolls around, jump, explore their surroundings, and just enjoy each other's company! 

The video itself is 8 years old, and the camera work is definitely shaky, but the content is simply too good and too cute to forget about. A mean... a playground full of adorable bear cubs? Sign us up!

Sleeping Man Woken Up By Bear Caught On Security Camera

Yesterday, Matthew Bete was taking a nap by his pool when, out of nowhere, a black bear walked onto his property through a gate. The bear immediately heads for Matthew's pool, taking a long, long drink from it. He then turns around, spots Matthew, and quietly walks over to him, sniffing his foot and gently reaching out to touch it. Matthew, stirred by the touch, wakes up startled and scares the bear off. And what else does he do immediately after? Take his phone out to film it of course. Check out photos of the incident bellow!

Un-Bear-Ably Silly And Ridiculous Bear Memes (26 Memes)

Bears. Beets. Battle Star Galactica. 

Okay, maybe just bears. However, bears might be the most interesting subject out of all three things listed above. Sorry to offend, beet lovers of the world. 

Bears are dangerous animals, but they're also one of the cutest animals around. Yes, if you encounter one out in the wild it would be downright terrifying but what is about these animals that make us drawn to them? It could be that they're obviously fluffy, or how funny they look when they're standing. Or, maybe it's just instilled into our minds at a young age when you get your first stuffed teddy bear. 

Also, there's the obvious fact that they hibernate for about 7 months, which just sounds like a dream for anyone of us. Ah, sleep, we love it so much.

Bear with us here while we dive into the wildest bear memes we found scattered across the web.

Another older gem of a video. When this giant bear walks up to where a man is sitting, the last thing you would think it would do is sit peacefully beside the man, and enjoy the view. 

That's exactly what happened. Really makes you wonder if sometimes, bears don't want to deal with you just as much as we don't want to accidentally stumble upon them. Maybe, they just want to take in the view, too. 

We will say, however, we are slightly disappointed the bear didn't sit in the empty chair beside him. Oh well! Can't win them all!
