These are the adorable pictures of a polar bear cub swimming for the first time at a Scottish wildlife park.
The cub is the first polar bear to be born in the UK in the past 25 years.
The three-and-a-half-month-old cub, based at the Highland Wildlife Park, splashed around with its mother Victoria.
The adorable cub, born to mother Victoria in December, has remained nameless as zookeepers attempt to determine its sex.
Victoria gave birth in a maternity den at Highland Wildlife Park in Scotland and for a while, the only confirmation was high-pitched noises coming from inside.
The cub and its mother were ensured privacy and caught on cameras as part of a two-year project documenting the breeding and birth.
