Toronto Zoo’s baby polar bear cub is growing up so fast.

She’s now six weeks old and weighs 2.1 kilograms. Her eyes are fully open and so are her ears. And she is teething – poor thing.

But the teething hasn’t curbed her hearty appetite. She eats seven times a day, and like any child, she wants some play time after each feed.

Watch the video here or below and you can hear the “trilling sound of a very content bear,” the zoo said.

The zoo said this is still a critical time for the bear, who requires care 24 hours a day.

Two cubs were born on Nov. 11, but one of the cubs passed away within the first 24 hours.
