If a bear was following your every move, would you be terrified or entertained? If you’re like most people, I’m sure you’d be a little terrified.

Especially if it was a polar bear watching your every move!

At the zoo, a polar bear watching you isn’t uncommon if you’re at their exhibit. What is a bit uncommon is a polar bear playing with a human! Recently, a group of friends visited the Rotterdam Zoo in the Netherlands. One man noticed the polar bear mimicking his movements and decided to have some fun!

Unlike some children or adults who taunt animals at the zoo, the man seems to be genuinely enjoying himself along with two polar bears.

The smaller polar bear, Fizzle, is completely enraptured in what the man is doing. When he ducks, the polar bear goes diving right after him. It’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!

Fizzle is so excited to have a friend to play with! You can see all of the games that the two play in the video below. It’s always wonderful to see stories of animals having tender interactions with the humans that visit them — like this baby gorilla who made friends with a teeny toddler!

Don’t forget to SHARE this adorable game of hide-and-seek with all of your friends and family!
