Polar Bear Cub Sleeps And Dreams With Cuddly Toy In Adorable Clip
This adorable polar bear cub just couldn’t get to sleep without her cuddly toy.
The 5-week-old was caught on camera snuggling into the plaything at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Powell, Ohio, earlier this week.
Video uploaded to Facebook and YouTube by the Zoo on Friday shows her stretching out, making cute noises and twitching as she dreams.
The cub, who has born on Nov. 6 and has not yet been named, currently weighs just 4 pounds and is 16-inches-long, according to the Facebook post.
“Both eyes have started to open as of yesterday, but they are not fully open yet,” it stated, revealing that she is fed every four hours.
“The care staff says the sound that she makes in the video is of contentment. Her motor skills are improving each day and she has started trying to stand up on all fours, especially when she’s ready for her next meal!” it added.
A previous Facebook post detailed that the Zoo’s Animal Care staff are hand-rearing the cub after her mother Aurora stopped caring for her.
In the wild, polar bears are found in the U.S., Canada, Russia, Denmark (Greenland) and Norway, and do not live in the southern hemisphere, according to the Zoo’s website.
Females live for an average 24.1 years and can grow to 8-feet-tall and 550-pounds. Males live on average for 20.7 years and grow to 10-feet-tall and 1,500-pounds.
