Polar Bear Cubs Leave Their Den For First Time To Play In Snow

Get ready for some of the most paw-dorable pictures you've ever seen. Brian Matthews captured these amazing, rare and beautiful pictures near Churchill, northern Canada of polar bear cubs leaving their den with their momma for the very first time to play around in the snow. The pictures clearly capture the nerves the cubs feel of leaving their den for the first time, gazing adoringly at their mom and staying close to her while exploring this beautiful new world. 

As The Irish Sun reports, Matthews said: "It was very humbling to be able to see something that very, very few people get to see. The cubs were really interested in the world in general, they were investigating and playing in the snow, smelling trees, looking around and generally getting their bearings."

He continued: "They seemed quite confident running about and playing in the snow, as long as they weren't too far from their mother. You can see in the photos of them all lying together how big these tiny cubs are going to grow up to be. It was just absolutely amazing to see the cubs playing in front of us, only about 50 metres away, and not at all fazed or spooked that we were there. It's heartening to see the positive side of polar bear conservation work."

Only after they calmed down a bit did the mother bear go and have a big ol' nap, her kiddos continuing to play around in the snow next to her. We hope we will get to see many, many more pictures of animals loving their natural habitats, and that this was the pawfect, smile-inducing start to your morning that you were hoping for.

Suka the Polar Bear has recently given birth to twin cubs at the Detroit Zoo! This is amazing news, not only because polar bears are declined out in the wild, but because Suka has had two lost pregnancies in the past and this time she finally welcoming twins! 

ZooBorns has some updates about the new mama and new cubs, "The cubs were born in a specially-designed, private maternity den away from the other bears. It is equipped with infrared video cameras that allow staff to monitor the mother and cubs without disturbing them. On November 19, it was observed that one of the cubs was becoming inactive and appeared to be weak. The staff allowed Suka out of the den so that the weak cub could be retrieved. 

The cub, a female, was taken to the Detroit Zoo's Ruth Roby Glancy Animal Health Complex where she was examined by veterinarians and given fluids and formula. She has continued to receive around-the-clock care and bottle feeding. At two days old, she weighed 556 grams (1.2 pounds). Today, she is 5.12 kilograms (11.3 pounds), and she has graduated from an incubator to a "playpen". She will eventually go back to live in the Arctic Ring of Life habitat. It is not yet known if she can be reunited with her mother and sibling, but eventually, she will live with other bears. Meanwhile, we continue to monitor Suka and the cub she is caring for. She has been a very attentive mom; continuously nursing, grooming, and cuddling her cub, with only short water and bathroom breaks. Both cubs are currently in private, behind-the-scenes areas and are not viewable by guests."

We pray that this newborn cub is healthy and living a long happy life alongside her mom and sibling!

Abandoned Polar Bear Cubs Get Pampered By Their Adoptive Human Moms

Two adorable bear cubs have been abandoned by their polar bear momma and are now being rescued by four new adoptive moms, and it's one of the cutest things we've seen. The cubs get pampered so much - getting manicures, massages, warm milk, and undivided attention. They are now seven weeks old and growing super fast, and we can't wait to see these cuties get even bigger. 

As dailymail reports, the cub's "seven-year-old mother, Seryozhka, from the Novaya Zemlya archipelago in the Arctic, built a den for her new cubs at a safari park in Gelendzhik, but then rejected the crying pair." The keepers at the zoo attempted to coax the mother into giving milk to the babies and failed, but she "gave blood which was used to give serum to the babies, vital as an immunity boost."

Luckily, the mother didn't hurt the cubs, and keepers at the zoo were able to step in and take care of the little babies. Their new foster moms are a pair of 39-year-old twins, Anastasia and Olesya Sakhatskaya, 32-year-old Maria Moroz, and 31-year-old Yelena Milovidova.

"They don't seem to distinguish between the four of us," said Elena. "They know the scent of our skin and clothes, and sensing any of us getting close to them means just one thing: mother is here, and food is coming." Yelena Milovidova, deputy director of the Gelendzhik Safari Park, adds: "There were no previous cases of nurturing polar bear cubs rejected by their mother in a Russian zoo. This is the first experience for us."

The cubs who have only recently opened their eyes now weight over 4 kilograms and should start doubling in weight every few weeks. When they're three months old, they'll start going on walks outside. 

"In the world there were only five or so cases of polar bear cubs raised since birth in captivity," continues Milovidova. "I do hope that we will succeed." And we really, really hope so too. We wish these cuties all the luck in the world and want to thank their caretakers who are really giving them all the love.

Check out pictures and a video of the cubs below, and for more wholesome bear stories, read about a circus bear living in terrible conditions being rescued and moved to a sanctuary.

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.

Canadian Photographer Captures Stunning Pics Of Polar Bears Frolicking in a Meadow

These images were taken in 2015, by Canadian photographer Dennis Fast, they have seen gone viral after appearing in Modern Met Magazine and you're about to see why!

Stunning images of polar bears frolicking in a vibrant pink field of fireweed. Seriously, what can top that? the striking contrast of the white polar bear against a sea of pink flowers.

The photos were taken in Northern Canada's Hudson Bay, near lodges run by Churchill Wild in Manitoba. Fast tells My Modern Met, "It's not just their color that makes them a favorite target of my camera. They have a slow, ambling gait as they drift about looking for anything that moves. It looks like they don't have a care in the world, and that there is nothing they are afraid off. It's not arrogance, exactly, but a quiet confidence that we often respect in humans and that translates well to the polar bear."
