There’s something truly captivating about observing wildlife in their natural habitat, especially when they exhibit behaviors that are so human-like. In the video embedded below, we get a delightful glimpse into the lives of a mother black bear, affectionately named Bertha, and her two playful cubs, Darryl and the Other Darryl. These three wild bears have been filmed over time, showcasing their daily antics and the mother’s diligent efforts to teach her cubs essential survival skills like climbing trees and foraging for food.

However, it’s not all work and no play for this bear family. The video below reveals that their favorite pastime is playing on an old hammock that’s been left hanging in their territory. The sight of these large, powerful creatures frolicking on a hammock, much like children on a playground, is both amusing and heartwarming. It’s a testament to the joy and playfulness that exists in nature, even in the wild.

Curious to see how the bears would react, the videographer decided to hang a new hammock in their territory. The result, as you’ll see in the video below, is a series of adorable and hilarious moments that beautifully capture the essence of this bear family. From their initial curiosity to their eventual acceptance and enjoyment of the new hammock, the video is a charming narrative of life in the wild.

While the video is undoubtedly entertaining, it also serves as a reminder of the importance of preserving these natural habitats. It’s a privilege to witness such intimate moments in the lives of Bertha, Darryl, and the Other Darryl, and it’s our responsibility to ensure that they, and other wildlife, continue to have the freedom and space to live and play as nature intended.
