Your morning adorable: Polar bear stops, drops and rolls at the Netherlands' Rotterdam Zoo

A polar bear enjoys the snow in Blijdorp Zoo in Rotterdam, Netherlands

It's not hard to imagine that it's pretty cold right about now at the Netherlands' Rotterdam Zoo.  Freezing temperatures would quickly put us in a foul mood (we'll be the first to admit it), but it's clearly just the way this polar bear likes it. 

The Rotterdam Zoo is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Netherlands, receiving about 1.5 million visitors each year.  It's well known for its polar bear exhibit, the Ice Cave, at which zoogoers can observe polar bears both underwater and on land.
