Photo Gallery: Polar bear taking first steps goes viral

TORONTO-- It's the viral video melting hearts. It started in Canada but quickly traveled south. 

The Toronto Zoo posted video of their three-month old polar bear taking his first steps. By Friday evening, the video had 1.6 million views. 

The cub was born November ninth. The first three months of a polar bear's life are critical. They often don't survive. The adorable cub featured in the video is the only one of his litter of three to survive.

When he was born, he was only a pound-and-a-half. Now, he's almost ten pounds. He hasn't been named yet and is in the care of veterinarians at the Toronto Zoo's Wildlife Health.
