Today’s daily dose of adorable comes from the Toronto Zoo in this clip of a 2-month old polar bear cub taking his first steps. The sole surviving bear in a litter of three, the cub has been living in the zoo’s intensive care unit since just after his birth so that his health could be monitored. He has since grown stronger and continues to reach new milestones, such as eating from a dish:

He also makes cute noises while sleeping:

"Our Wildlife Care Team has been working around the clock to look after this special cub. We are very happy with his progress so far. We hope that he will grow up to become another ambassador for his species, highlighting threats to the arctic environment," says Dr. Graham Crawshaw, a veterinarian at the zoo.

Polar bears are currently listed as Threatened under the Endangered Species Act.
