In pics: Polar bear chills at his new home in Scotland

Polar bear Walker in the water, settling into new home in Highland Wildlife Park in Scotland.

Meet Walker, he's just moved to the UK. The cub, who's almost two-years-old, has a beautiful white fur coat - but how long will it last for?

He used to live in the Netherlands, but had to move over to Highland Wildlife Park in Scotland because his mother is pregnant and needs to rest in her den.

But Mercedes here, the only other polar bear at a British zoo, is hopefully going to be a mother figure for him. She's 28-years-old and will keep Walker company at his new home.

Walker has been settling in well and enjoying himself, rolling around in the mud and getting his coat very dirty!

Walker's dipped his paws and nose into water proving that the mud can easily be washed off too! But his messing around show's he's happy in his new home.
