Cute alert: In a video filmed on Jan. 14, a polar bear cub was introduced to snow for the first time at the Toronto Zoo. The clip was posted to YouTube on Wednesday.

On Jan. 6, the zoo also filmed the cub’s first steps:



According to CTV, “After his birth on Nov. 9, staff noticed he wasn't moving strongly, and took the bear from his mother Aurora and to the zoo's intensive care unit. The cub was the lone survivor of Aurora's litter of three, and seemed to slow down following the death of his siblings, the zoo said on its blog, At the time, he weighed less than 700 grams."
