Polar bear (Ursus maritimus) cub sitting on ice and yawning, early morning, Beaufort Sea, Arctic Ocean, Alaska. Though yawning amongst bears is a stress sign, it’s also perfectly common for bears to yawn just as we do, due to tiredness and even boredom. This cute polar bear cub began playing on the ice shortly after this photo, leading one to believe he was merely tired and/or bored. Polar bear cub, Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska.
