Video: Adorable polar bear twins explore outside their den

Too. Cute.

The first photos and videos of the Columbus Zoo's polar bear twins have been released, and they're adorable.

These two twin cubs were born back in November, and they're just starting to explore what the world has to offer.

Here's video of the cubs playing outside their den:

The zoo says the 3-month-old cubs are now eating chow, but will sneak a little bit of meat from their mom when they get the chance. And they're enjoying playing in the water and then drying off on the sod.

The zoo also released video of their cousin – also born last November – climbing and running all over the place:

Polar bears are the largest land predator in the world, and did you know that their fur is not actually white? The Columbus Zoo says each hair is actually pigment-free and transparent with a hollow core, and the skin, nose and lips of a polar bear are black.
