Adorable Footage Of A Playful Polar Bear Cub Hitching A Ride On Its Mama’s Back

Kids are happiest when spending time with their mothers who are always patient and tolerant to them. Follow every step of moms, snuggle up to moms, play with moms – it’s the most joyful time of the day for a kid. Interestingly, this is strongly proved in the world of animals.

Just look at adorable photos of the polar bear cub in this story! The playful and energetic animal can’t wait to have some fun during snow with its mama.

Polar bears cubs usually spend the first couple of months of their lives in a den with their moms. That’s why the moment they leave the den for the first time is worth waiting for. The cheerful creature can’t hide the excitement on its face.

The young animal started playing around in the snow while its mom was watching over it. It couldn’t be better! But when she got up to leave, the cub came up with a trick. It would hitch a ride on its mom’s back. Its paws were just too tired for the journey.

What did the cub do? It ran after its mom, jumped, and reached out holding on with a firm bite on its mom’s fur. Because the animal was too small, it ended up hitching a ride on its mama’s butt. The plan went wrong but it still got a free ride. Perfect!

Regarding the polar bear mother, she was very keen on her “sneaky” cub. She let her baby cling to her butt and continued her trip. Her kid got fun with its playful trick, so she pretended not to realize it.

These sweet, adorable moments were captured in Wapusk National Park in northern Manitoba by photographer Daisy Gilardini. She spent a total of 117 hours waiting outside the den. This required a lot of persistence as the temperature was ranging from -45 C to -50 C with the wind chill, and the wind was gusting up to 60 to 70 km/h.

And her patience paid off. The mother polar bear took her cub outside to seek food. Gilardini even snapped hilarious photos of the pair getting along.

“It is extremely difficult and rare to witness the exit of the bears from the dens and one has to face extremely challenging conditions,” Gilardini said.
