Polar Bear Cub Nestled With Mother Will Fill Your Heart With Warm, Fuzzy Feelings (PHOTOS)

There's nothing quite like the love between a mother and her baby -- especially when the baby is a fuzzy polar bear cub.

In a series of "aww"-inducing photos from Russia's Novosibirsk Zoo, a polar bear cub and her mother cuddle together and nuzzle each other.

The adorable cub, who has yet to be named, was born to the 6-year-old polar bear late last year.

"It is almost impossible to watch them together because it is so pure a love, the kind you can only dream about. Such love and tenderness," photographer Vera Salnitskaya told The Siberian Times.

It's not the first time 6-year-old Gerda and her cub have captured the world's eye. In March, the mom and cub emerged from their den and went for a playful romp in the snow.
