Watch a Baby Polar Bear’s First Steps

It might be a little wobbly and a little unsteady but this polar bear cub just accomplished something huge! Check out the video below to watch this baby polar bear’s first steps.

This adorable baby polar bear, born at the Toronto Zoo on Saturday Nov 9, 2013, is just over 8 weeks old. He might look small to you, but he has grown a lot since early November; he weighed 700 grams when he was born and now weighs 4.4 kg (4400 grams).

Here are some of the polar bear cub’s biggest milestones:
• Day 6 – started ‘purring’
• Day 8 – started crawling
• Day 14 – skin and pads on feet turned from pink to black; ears started to open
• Day 15 – began to roll over
• Day 35 – eyes fully opened
• Day 58 – took its first steps

We are excited to continue watching this polar bear cub as he grows up!
