Animals have fun too: sliding snow bears

Thrill-seeking German bears snapped hurtling down snowy slopes |

These two European brown bears seemed to be having the time of their lives sliding on their backsides in the snow in front of stunned onlookers.

It seems even bears enjoy a snow day, as the pair of bears frolicked in the snow acting like excitable children, taking turns to slide to the bottom of the frozen slope.

Their incredible 20-minute display was captured by British photographer Duncan Usher who travelled to a German wildlife park to capture some action shots, but ended up with a little more than he bargained for.

How awesome is this picture.


We underestimate animals. They have fun too.

    I saw a video once with a bird snowboarding on a roof. It seemed to enjoy the activity too. Animals do like to have fun!
