A polar bear cub was filmed exploring a new environment at Sea World at the Gold Coast, Queensland in footage released to the public on Sunday, July 30. The three-month-old started to explore new substrates such as shaved ice, Sea World said, an important step in her development. “The first time the cub saw Cub Kindy, she was a little nervous, but after watching and learning from mum her confidence grew and she began to dig, run and play in the ice and is now starting to spend more time out there,” Marine Sciences director Trevor Long said. The moment marked the cub’s first steps outside of her den, the Gold Coast Bulletin reported. Credit: Sea World Australia via Storyful
