If you've ever wanted to see a five-week-old polar bear cub sleeping, you'll love this.

The Columbus Zoo has posted a video of its baby polar bear cub sleeping and dreaming, and she is ridiculously adorable. The zoo explains in the video's description that the sounds she makes while sleeping are signs of "contentment," though we can only imagine what she might be dreaming about.

POLAR BEAR CUB UPDATE: The cub is 25 days old today and continues to do well. The hand rearing team stays with her 24...
