The curious polar bear seemed to be in need of some extra insulation as she was spotted inspecting the stray piece of frozen clothing.

The rather odd moment was captured near a small Eskimo settlement in the Arctic circle by African professional wildlife photographer Daryl Balfour.

The frolicking polar bear had an inquisitive cub in her company, who was fascinated by his mother’s antics, constantly attempting to steal the strange object from her.

Although it seems like an unusual thing to be lying around in the Arctic, Daryl, 63, assumed it was left there by the natives who use the island for drying fish caught during the summer months.

Daryl said: “This polar bear mum and her cub were frolicking about like it was a balmy day on the Costa do Sol. I found the whole episode truly amusing and entertaining.

“While photographing I was imagining the universal question ladies seem to ask: “Does this make me look fat?”

“Polar bears are very inquisitive by nature, playing with foreign items they might find, including driftwood and other items that could wash up in the Beaufort Sea.”
