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.
The two, believed to be brothers, are testing their strength as they roll around in the snow before being joined by another litter mate.
Photographer Sylvain Cordier captured the playful exchange as the young bears hit and pushed at each other.
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.
