Saturday Night Fur-ver: The disco dancing polar bear who thinks he”s John Travolta
He”s wearing white, hangs out in a very cool location and has all the funkiest moves… could this polar bear cub be the Arctic Circle’s answer to John Travolta
In a series of astonishing photographs, the one-year-old was captured swinging his hips and striking poses uncannily reminiscent of Travolta in the classic 1977 disco film Saturday Night Fever.
With paws dripping in meltwater the bear started his routine on one leg, before swinging his hips and arms to his own beat. And he even captured Travolta’s iconic pose from the movie poster, one arm aloft, the other by his side.

But rather than showing off his excellent dancing skills, the cub was actually making his first tentative steps towards standing upright.
Wildlife photographer Steven Kazlowski, who caught the moment from a nearby boat, said: ‘The bear was trying very hard to stand up and keep its balance.
‘Young bears are always trying to stand and get a better look at what’s around them, as their mothers do, but they are incredibly unbalanced.
‘This curious and overexcited cub was trying to get a better look at us as we passed a few yards away on the skiff.’
Kazlowski,who specialises in images of polar bears, took the amazing pictures from Bernard Spit, a narrow strip of land extending from Northern Alaska.
