Grizzly bears get hot, too.

On a particularly toasty June 18, Bruiser the bear handled the uncomfortable heat just like any human would – by climbing up the mini ladder of a swimming pool, belly-flopping into the water and splashing around with unmistakable glee. Bruiser played with the surfboard before hopping out and hurrying back to the ladder, which he climbed up and dove from yet again.

The YouTube video was uploaded by Single Vision Inc, an organization that works to protect wildlife and endangered species. According to their website, Bruiser is three years old and will grow to be roughly 600 lbs. His two great loves? “Swimming and tearing up boxes.”
