Twice as cute: Newborn polar bear twins snuggle up paw to paw

By Leon Watson

They're so cute you can bear-ly believe it.

These newly-released snaps show two adorable baby polar bears just after they were born.

The twins' species is more used to the icy waste of the Arctic. And no doubt they will both grow into enormously powerful animals, easily capable of killing a human.

But snuggled up in bed paw-to-paw, that's hard to believe as these furry fellas are enough to melt even the coldest of hearts.

The as yet unnamed bears first said hello to the world on October 14 last year after being born at the LHT Pole Aquarium in China.

They are the third litter of youngsters produced by a pair donated by the Finnish government in 2001.

In 2008 the pair gave birth to China's first polar bear, Tao Tao. Then last January they gave birth to two youngsters - a boy and a girl - before producing the most recent twins.

The two month old male twins now weigh 9.7kg and 9.1kg respectively and are just learning to crawl. Eventually they will weigh between 350 to 680kg.

Snaps released earlier show the two bear babies when they were introduced to the public on Boxing Day.

Their home also contains beluga whales, sea otters, sea elephants, dolphins and penguins – but it’s safe to say that the young polar bears are going to be one of the star attractions.
