Two polar bear cubs have been caught engaging in a bout of sibling rivalry as they playfully wrestled each other in the Arctic Ocean.

The stunning pictures show the two cubs square up to each other in the water, before this action-packed struggle for dominance ensued. Although there was no clear winner, the wrestle at least gave the cubs a chance to blow off some steam.

The images were captured by professional photographer Ian Plant, 44, from Victoria, Minnesota, USA during a trip to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.

Polar Bears are the largest predator in the Arctic and can smell their prey from 10 miles away according to experts

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a national wildlife refuge in northeastern Alaska, United States. It consists of 19,286,722 acres (78,050.59 km2) in the Alaska North Slope region. It is the largest National Wildlife Refuge in the country, slightly larger than the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge.

The refuge supports a greater variety of plant and animal life than any other protected area in the Arctic Circle.

Vast, beautiful and remote, this refuge is often called America's last great wilderness
