Bear Cub Waves “Hello” To Photographer

Share this post on:


Bears are often seen in the wild. One such encounter was captured by a nature enthusiast and photographer while out in the bear country. Dive into the cute video of a bear cub waving “hello” at the camera.


Bears are mostly found in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia.

In mountainous, forest, grassland, and even desert areas.

Bear diversity 

There are various bear species found in America.

This includes the American Black Bear, Brown Bears, Kodiak bears, Kermode bears, and the Louisiana black bear.

In this article, we will be taking a closer look at Brown bears, also known as grizzly bears.

Their name comes from their hair having light tips looking “grizzled” and “grisel,” which means horrible. 


Grizzly are omnivores whose diet mainly consists of fruits, roots, nuts, small rodents, fish, and the occasional elk or moose.

Their diet increases as hibernation nears, so they can store enough body fat reserves to carry them through their 4-7 month hibernation period. 


Grizzly reach sexual maturity between 4 to 7 years, in which a female will mate with various males in the mating season in May and June.

The egg is only implanted in October or November, right before the female hibernates.

Two to three cubs are born around the start of the year and stay with their mother for a few years before leaving and starting their own lives.


Bear cub waves 

In the viral video, one can see a mother grizzly with her 2 cubs.

Upon seeing the humans taking the video, one of the cubs stands on its hind legs to get a better view.

The bear cub uses its hands to balance but looks like it is waving. 

This adorable moment showcases the curiosity of bear cubs. 


Hello little bear!! 🐻 Cubs are naturally super curious, and often stand up to get a better view of us humans as they pass by. This little one waved her paws around to try to stabilize herself, and it looked like she was waving to us. I couldn’t help but wave back 🤗 🎥 & caption: @brookelittlebear . . . . . #alaska #alaskahomesteadlodge #alaskaphotography #alaskalife #alaskaliving #alaskalove #alaskawildlife #bearphotography #wildlifeprotection #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #brownbear #alaskabeauty
