Fourteen-week old twin polar bear cubs from the Hellabrunn Zoo in Munich were presented to the public for the first time on Wednesday.

The two cubs and their seven-year old mother Giovanna explored their outside enclosure together, demonstrating an excellent maternal bond.

Keepers commended Giovanna for looking after the cubs so well; the three are in a "good condition," they said.

The still unnamed cubs were born on December 9, 2013.

They live separately from their father Yogi, as any attempt at a family reunion is deemed as risky.

He was temporarily relocated to Stuttgart zoo earlier this month.

Munich zoo visitors will be able to see the little polar bear family from Wednesday afternoon.

Dr Andreas Knieriem, Director of Hellabrunn Zoo said he was confident the family would "win hearts."
