In pictures: Polar bear cub hand-reared in China

Take a few moments to bask in the cuteness of this three-month-old cub.

PENGLAI OCEAN Polar World has been celebrating the three-month-mark since the birth of a female polar bear cub at the zoo.

The cub was rejected by its mother following its birth on New Year’s Day and was initially cared for in an incubator. The tiny cub suffered problems with her digestive and nervous systems, as well as malnutrition due to the lack of milk from the mother bear.

Staff at the facility have been hand-rearing the cub and expect her to begin making public appearances at about three months.
