A captivating series of photos appear to show a family of baby brown bears dancing to Ring a Ring o’ Roses as their mother relaxes behind a tree nearby.
At just a few months old, two young males and one female gather in a circle, clutch each others’ hands and looks as if they are dancing to the popular nursery rhyme.
It’s almost like a scene from a school playground as the bears joyfully play together, tapping their feet and moving around in a circle.
PE teacher Valtteri Mulkahainen, 52, was lucky enough to witness the magical moment and captured it on his camera which he uses as a hobby.
He was travelling through eastern Finland when they came across the bears near Suomussalmi. Valtteri, from Sotkamo in east Finland, said:
‘When I saw them standing on their hind legs I thought I was imagining it.
‘It seemed like I was in the middle of the magic forest in a fairy tale. ‘If the bears began to sing I probably wouldn’t have been surprised because it was so unusual to watch.’
According to Valtteri, the bears were constantly fighting and playing with each other ‘just like small children’ as he watched nearby.
While the mother bear was eating, her children were constantly fighting while standing on their hind legs and tumbling to the ground.
