"Bear Napping"

Every year polar bear mom and cubs-(or in this case only one cub) emerge from hibernation and after the cubs get their "sea legs", as it were, they start there long trek to the Hudson Bay area. It's a long walk- about 30- 40 miles- and not much food , if any, along the way. At this point they were about 10 miles from their den and already feeling the fatigue.
