Polar bear cub captured wriggling and rolling around in park den

The little one has been captured on camera having a wriggle before settling down for a snooze in the den.

Adorable footage shows a one-month-old polar bear cub wriggling and rolling around at Highland Wildlife Park in Aviemore.

The little one has been captured on camera having a wriggle before settling down for a snooze in the den with mother Victoria close by.

The unnamed cub was born to Victoria in December last year after the mother previously gave birth to Hamish, the UK’s first polar bear cub in 25 years, back in 2017.

Both mum and cub are currently off-limits to the viewing public for the first few months to give them peace and quiet as the cub gets used to life.

Polar bears are born blind and do not develop eyesight until around the first month of their life.

The first few months of their existence are critical and the mother’s need for privacy is important.
