(Feb. 15, 2016) – A three-month-old polar bear cub got her first taste of snow, and it’s absolutely adorable.

The Toronto Zoo posted video on Facebook of the cute encounter. The staff introduced her to snow for the first time last week to help her become more familiar with the area that will soon become her new home.

The cub, which now weighs about 17 pounds, was born in November and is still receiving formula with meat slowly being introduced to her diet. She’s currently in the maternity den of the polar bear exhibit and is not ready for public viewing quite yet.

Zoo officials said the cub doesn’t have a name but expects to make an announcement soon regarding her name and public debut.
