Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus) cubs, about 7-8/months old, pause to reaffirm their strong bond and observe the strange two-legged beings on the boat. Male cub on the right was constantly moving, annoying his sleeping mother and initiating play with his sister (on the left here). Like most brothers he was eager to show his strength and power, but he never got too rough with his sister.
