Five year-old Ian Parker made friends with another five-year-old on a trip to the zoo – a playful bear who loves jumping as much as he does.
Ian and his father, Patrick, were on a day out at Nashville Zoo when they decided to visit the zoo’s new Peruvian-themed exhibit, Patrick told Fox News. The new enclosure is home to three Andean bears, including five-year-old female Luka.
When Luka leapt into a pool of water inside the enclosure, Ian began jumping up and down with excitement – and to his delight, the young bear came over to the glass wall started joining in.
Patrick managed to film the tail-end of what he said turned into a ten-minute jumping session between the pair.
He later posted his video of the heartwarming encounter to Facebook, where it has now been shared more than 6,000 times by users around the world.
