Rangers discover 400 ‘bear selfies’ taken on park camera


This Colorado grizzly could not bear the opportunity to take a good selfie.

Park rangers discovered hundreds of photos taken by bears on wildlife cameras meant to simply observe animals.

“Of the 580 photos captured, about 400 were bear selfies,” OSMP wrote on Twitter in a post that has over 1,000 likes.

The bear served several fierce poses, channeling their Tyra Banks’ smize and showing off every adorable angle in its bear-y cute photo dump.

The Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) has nine camera traps on 46,000 acres in Boulder, Colorado.

The camera trap allows rangers to observe animals in their habitat, snapping a photo each time the motion detector is set off. The team uses infrared light to reduce any disturbance for nocturnal wildlife. MORE

  1. Thank God.

    “Bear Selfies” mean something totally different in the city.

    Bears around here hate game cams.
    They tear them off the trees all the time.

    Watched a trail cam video of a bear ripping a mirror someone put up on a tree. Bear went ballastic when he saw himself in the mirror.

  4. The cameras don’t smell like nature. My buddy keeps his in a box full of dirt and leaves from the area he installs them. Seems to work for awhile but eventually the animals start to sense them. We figure it’s the odor of the synthetic plastics and such.
