Ever seen a polar bear give birth?

A double bill of Frozen Planet airs tonight on Discovery – watch this amazing clip of a polar bear giving birth. And then stay tuned for a hour show on “the making of Frozen Planet”. It’ll amaze you the way they captured some of those world class shots. Incredible what the team went through!

A polar bear gives birth in her winter’s den. The cubs are born blind and tiny. A polar bear’s milk is nine times richer than our own, so the cubs will double in weight every two weeks.

And here’s a clip of the cameraman Mark Smith filming a polar bear in the front yard of their Arctic cabin!
