What is black, white and red everywhere? Not a newspaper – but a polar bear mother and her young having lunch.
The little cub was left with his face completely covered with seal blood after he found his way through a new murder on the Svalbard Islands – an archipelago belonging to Norway.
Nature photographer Andy Rouse said he ran into the mother and baby while they were doing a good party, with little left of the seal but blood and bones.
Nature photographer Andy Rouse encountered a polar bear mother and her cub eating the remains of a seal in Svalbard, an island chain in Norway
The polar bear cub had clearly enjoyed his meal based on the evidence that had been plastered over his face
There was almost nothing left of the seal by the time Mr Rouse came over the couple, and he said they were clearly full of the way they walked
He said the baby cub ate so much that he could barely walk, with the couple lying nearby after their feed for a nap.
Mr. Rouse, who took the photo on July 15, said: & # 39; It was an amazing experience to teach the cub such an important life skill. It fed until it could barely walk.
& # 39; We laughed because it was clearly such a huge effort to go up the hill to his mother again, and it fell deep asleep!
& # 39; These images show the real life of polar bears, as the top predators it is a matter of survival to hunt and kill seals.
& # 39; Unfortunately, these kinds of images are rarely shown to the public, because nowadays we only show beautiful and shiny animals in the wild, I do the exact opposite, to show nature in the rough nature as I see it & # 39;
Andy Rouse is a professional nature photographer and conservationist who travels the world documenting the beautiful nature he sees.
Although images of the natural world are often washed white to adapt to people's tastes, Mr. Rouse said he enjoys photographic nature in all its bloody details
Polar bears are top predators, which means they don't have natural predators. They eat almost everything they can kill, but enjoy seals the most
After the meal ended, the polar bear and her cub staggered away for a nap
