Polar bear cubs venture out of their den for the first time

These playful polar bear cubs pose for the perfect family paw-trait after venturing out of their den for the very first time, before taking a well earned snooze curled up with their mum. The baby bears were captured in thick snow as they took their first steps into the inside world, accompanied by their protective mother. They were seen stomping around in -40 degree surroundings before curling up for a well-earned snooze in their freezing habitat. The sweet family photos were captured by award-winning British wildlife photographer Brian Matthews, 41, in Wapusk National Park in Manitoba, Canada earlier this week.
