OTTAWA (AFP) - Nearly a million people who watched online on Friday as a polar bear cub took its first clumsy steps in Toronto Zoo.

"Soooo cute!" declared one web user. "The cuteness... is pretty much unequalled," wrote another.

The cub is one of three males born in captivity on Nov 9, but the only one to survive.

Weighing less than 700g at birth, the cub was admitted to the zoo's intensive care unit for round-the-clock observation.
