This Video of a Polar Bear Mama Teaching Her Baby to Save Herself Left Us Speechless


Sometimes, we learn the best life lessons by paying attention to animals.

Check out this moment of true motherly love and really great parenting that was caught on tape at a zoo. When a cute little polar bear cub (her name is Milk!) slips into the water and can’t swim, her mom, Kurumi, dives in immediately to make sure her baby is okay.

But instead of just lifting Milk out of the water to safety, this mama bear does something so much better instead. Check it out below.

Every now and then, a video comes along that touches our hearts every time we watch (even if we hit replay a hundred times). This is so one of those videos.
