Despite their huge stature and sometimes-threatening demeanor, bears can be some of the cutest creatures walking the face of the earth.

Don't agree? Then tell me that this footage from the North American Bear Center in Ely isn't one of the most adorable things you've ever seen.

The mother bear, 3-year-old Jewel, gave birth to a male cub and a female cub in her den before an internet audience late last month.

Here's the footage:
