This utterly precious baby polar bear lives at the Wildlife Health Center at the Toronto Zoo, and since he was only born in November, this is his first experience of winter. Which means you get to watch him have a formative experience: meeting a polar bear’s natural element, snow, for the first time.

His verdict seems to be “squeeeee”:

If this inspires you to great feats of philanthropy, you can donate to the Wildlife Health Center here. If you donate enough, maybe they’ll let you choose the next substance that the baby encounters for the first time. Silly putty? Rubber? Jello? There’s sort of nothing I wouldn’t watch this cub squeal at.
