Polar bears Arktos and Victoria have been caught together on camera as Valentine’s Day approaches at the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland’s Highland Wildlife Park. Picture kindly supplies by RZSS.
Staff at the wildlife conservation charity brought the pair together again following a European Endangered Species Breeding Programme recommendation and are encouraged by how well they are getting on so far.
Hopes are high as the couple have already successfully bred once before in 2017, with Victoria giving birth to Hamish, the first polar bear cub born in the UK for 25 years.
Highland Wildlife Park is currently closed due to Covid19 restrictions.
