A Turkish explorer gently hugged a large wild bear.
In this adorable video, an explorer and a friendly bear engage in a fun water battle before cuddling up!
Seeing a big bear up close and in person is an experience no one wants to have. But, while most of us would go in the opposite direction if we saw a bear, this guy seems to be in awe!
A Turkish explorer was seen in a fantastic footage cuddling affectionately with a large wild bear.
The scene took place in the Altai Republic, located between Russia and Kazakhstan, and depicts adventurer Cemal Gulas playing and cuddling with a loving animal under a waterfall.
Gulas and the bear have obviously met before, but the guy walks up and hugs his furry buddy with such confidence you’d think they were making a scene.
But that’s not the case at all. The video is part of the Asia Expedition project, which will last 20 months from the Bosphorus to the Bering Strait.
In the video, Gulas, a wildlife enthusiast, can be seen calling for a bear on the river bank. In his own language, the man says: “Come to me, son”.
– Honey, come to me. Before exchanging a heartfelt hug, the friendly bear joins him in a silly water game.
Often misunderstood, these huge creatures are gentle giants, as evidenced by footage like this.
