A young polar bear cub has been observed taking a few tentative steps at a zoo in the US.
The cub, born at the end of November at Columbus Zoo in Ohio, was captured on camera attempting a few steps as mum Aurora stepped out for a walk of her own.
The zoo tweeted: “When you step out of the room and your kid starts to walk…!
“Aurora’s cub is now 5 weeks old and starting to maneuver around the den. While momma bear was getting a drink of water, the little one took the opportunity to stretch his or her legs!
The cub was born to 13-year-old Aurora and 20-year-old Lee on Thanksgiving Day, November 28.
Polar bears are listed as an endangered species because of the reduction of their habitat caused by climate change, according to the WWF.
