The four year old gleefully plunged into the chilly waters of a frozen lake at the Project Polar Reserve, which became a winter wonderland to the four polar bears who enjoy its ten acres of caves, lakes and rolling terrain.

Nobby and his mates Nissan, Pixel and 14-year-old Victor got to grips with some logs as they frolicked in the big freeze.

Carnivore Team Leader Kim Wilkins said: “They have been having a great time while everyone else was wrapping up warm. “Nobby just loved cracking through the ice."
