On an regular day, you might find Vincent James of Daytona Beach, Florida, kicking back in the hammock outside his home.

Clearly, he’s not the only one who wants to kick back and relax.

According to CNN, the homeowner was stunned last Thursday when he watched a black bear hop into the mesh hammock that hangs between two trees in his backyard (watch video below).

“He got in the hammock, laid back like he was a tourist or something,” James told CNN affiliate WESH.

The animal was so comfortable, he stayed there for 20 minutes, long enough for photographer Rafael Torres to snap plenty of pictures from about 60-feet away.

Residents of the Pebble Creek neighborhood said they spotted the bear hanging around as early as last Wednesday, ripping down bird-feeders and tearing through garbage cans looking for food.

Should the animal come back for another swing in the hammock, he’ll be bear-y disappointed: James has taken it down.
