Cute Now -- Scary Later. The Animal Video of the Day!!!
I'm a sucker for cute animals--particularly little babies. But I'm also aware that when some animals get older they get much larger--and eat us if we're in the wrong place at the wrong time. Polar Bears are considered the alpha predator in their environment, and I would not want to be on the receiving end of a bite from one of these critters.
But... they are soooooooo cute when they're little. This video, uploaded by Jamie Ye on December 30, 2011 just makes you want to give them a big hug.
Its hard to imagine something that cute tearing across an ice-flow as you scramble toward... well, toward wherever the hell it is that you're scrambling to because you're stuck on an ice-flow. I wish you luck, my friend. I wish you luck.
