A baby polar bear is no different from a baby brown bear, baby black bear, or a baby Kodiak bear. The baby polar bear is called a cub in pretty much the same way as lion’s baby. We often use the term cubs for most mammals’ offspring. Polar bear is just another land mammal. A baby polar bear remains a cub for the first few months since it grows quite rapidly in its initial days.
Polar bear cubs are way too smaller in comparison to polar bear adults. In fact, they resemble the size of an adult ground squirrel. That is why the mother polar bear keeps a close eye on her cub for as long as it doesn’t reach adulthood. A baby polar bear stays for the most part of its life in a den not only to remain safe from predators—they stay warm inside the den.
