They say bears are some of the most majestic animals out there, right among foxes, wolves, and unicorns. If lions are considered kings of the jungle, bears have to be kings of the forests.
But when they’re not busy looking for food or sleeping, they’re dedicating some time to derp around, whether alone or with other fellow bears.
We rifled through the internet to find the most adorable, hilarious, or just random pictures of bears taking a break from nature and doing whatever it is that they are doing in those pictures.
You’ll find them in the curated list below, and while you’re down there, why not vote and comment on the ones you enjoyed the most, read up on bears and check out our interview with North American Bear Center founder and principal biologist Dr. Lynn Rogers.
