In a matter of seconds, this video is almost guaranteed to make your day better.
Even before rising to its hind legs, this grizzly cub seems inclined to wiggle, giving a small on-the-spot shimmy as he lags behind his family. Then, staring directly at the camera, the cub gives a small performance, standing on its hind legs and wobbling in an uncoordinated “dance” before returning to join its sibling and mother.
Grizzlies often stand on their hind legs to gather more information about their surroundings, and it is considered a sign of curiosity, not aggression. This behaviour, which is impressive when it’s done by a full-grown grizzly, is completely adorable coming from a tottering cub.
With summer behind us, why not do your co-workers a favour by sharing this ten-second pick-me-up?
