Phoenix Zoo has a new addition to its animal family: Andean mother bear Rio recently gave birth to a male cub.

Rio’s cub won’t be available for public viewing for a few months, but zookeepers were able to shoot some video of the his first steps. The video can be viewed on YouTube through the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkwv-n9KspU.

A vegetarian species native to South America, Andean bears have white facial markings that make them look as if they’re wearing glasses. There are approximately 56 Andean bears in zoos throughout the United States.
