Stop it mum, you know i’m bear-y ticklish! Cuteness overload as bear mum tickles her cub
Squirming in its mother’s arms and seemingly shrieking with laughter – this is one ticklish baby!
The adorable photographs show a mother bear and her cub appearing to have a really good giggle.
The mum can be seen playfully biting her cub’s neck and tickling it with its huge paws, while both look highly amused.
German photographer Sven-Erik Arndt was lucky enough to witness this cuteness overload in a captive area in Sweden.
Sven-Erik, 39, said: “It’s wonderful to see a big predator like a brown bear in such a cute situation and how a huge animal can take care of its cubs.
“I travelled to Sweden especially for the bears.
“I spent three days trying to get pictures of the playing mother and the cub.”
