COME on in, the water’s ice and cold! This little polar bear, the first born in the UK for 25 years, is just loving having a dip.

Mother bear Victoria is shown guiding her three-month-old infant through the water as they splash around together.

They both live at the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland’s Highland Wildlife Park near Aviemore.

Victoria is also special to the park as she is the only female polar bear in the country.

A spokesman for the attraction said: ‘We are proud to have some of the most naturalistic polar bear facilities anywhere in the world.’
