In the Canadian Rockies, the BBC film crew for Planet Earth II left remote cameras to capture footage of grizzly bears. They were delightfully surprised by what was on the recordings.
The land was lush with trees, grass, vines, all healthy and bright green. It is the perfect picture of beautiful and serene nature. And it is also the bears’ dance floor.
A bear walks across the dirt as ‘Jungle Boogie’ starts to play. He walks up to a tree and starts to dance against it. Full of confidence the grizzly bear shows off his best moves.
Cameras capture an angle of him from far away and another has a view of him from atop the tree. He seems oblivious to the cameras, or he simply does not care.
The bear looks very satisfied as he holds on to a branch for support. The tree’s bark is rough and has the perfect texture to scratch his back.
Swaying his hips, moving up and down the tree, the bear has some great dance moves. The other bears have similar moves and all the trees are just the right height for them.
In summer or winter, the bears can be seen dancing against the trees in all sorts of poses. It makes you wonder if grizzly bears are the best dancers of all the bears in the world.
