These huge polar bears may look aggressive as they raise their large paws and show their sharp teeth - but the pair are actually play fighting.<br />
<br />
The two, believed to be brothers, are testing their strength as they roll around in the snow before being joined by another litter mate.<br />
<br />
Photographer Sylvain Cordier captured the playful exchange as the young bears hit and pushed at each other.<br />
<br />
Though they didn't draw blood this time, it is not an uncommon occurrence during play fights as the polar bears can sometimes get carried away as they judge their strength.<br />
