Mama bear teaches cubs how to climb

The bear cub makes a valiant attempt at scaling the tree, but mum sees that he’s going to need some help.

The Kamchatka Brown Bears’ adventurous manoeuvres took place at Hagenbeck Zoo in Hamburg.
Climbing trees is a bear necessity for these animals – and here mum is teaching her cubs how it should be done.

Mum decides to give the little ‘un a push as the group track down a crow that’s perched higher up.
Mummy then decides to show them how it’s done and makes an attempt to reach the top herself.
