A Marine and mammal park in Australia has released footage of two newborn polar bears being fed by their mother.
The video released by Sea World Australia shows the tiny twins waggling in their den and suckling milk. The twin cubs were born on April 26 to a sixteen-year-old second-time mother. They weighed about 600 grams at birth with a height of only 15 centimeters.
This is while when fully grown, they can stand as tall as 3.5 meters and weigh up to more than 600 kilograms. The unnamed babies are considered good news for those concerned about the species in the world. Polar bears currently number about a good 26,000. But according to scientists, their population is expected to fall within 35 to 40 years due to the rapid melting of sea ice in the Arctic caused by global warming.
