Here's how this is going to go: you're going to watch this video, make a sappy face as you let out an appropriately loud "awwww," and then you're going to Google how you can adopt a polar bear.

Allow us to save you the trouble and tell you now that it will not be worth the hassle.

Yes, these bears are adorable. And yes, it's hard to not love them. But keep in mind what they become. An adult male can grow up to 1,500 pounds and 10 feet tall. Something that size does not fit comfortably in a person's living room.

So take a deep breath, feel free to watch the video again (and again), and get your polar bear fix from a distance. Up close, even the adorable ones will eventually kill you.
