Great picture! Mr. Polar Bear probably enjoyed that fish fillet more than he would a waffle or two. On the other hand, has anyone ever tried feeding a polar bear a waffle to see if they like waffles?
Scientists on a ship in the arctic had a surprise guest recently when a polar bear smelt them cooking waffles.
The Norwegian researchers were about to sit down for their afternoon coffee when the bear poked its head through the kitchen port hole.
But instead of ushering the giant predator away, the team decided to offer it a fillet of fish so that it didn’t leave empty-handed.
They also managed to take this great picture in the process, which was later shared on Reddit by user Johnny_love.
The scientists were on board the Lance, an research and expedition vessel used by the Norwegian Polar Institute.
It can also be hired for parties and cruises in the summer.
It would be such fun to meet charming baby polar bears, like these three. Anyone for a summer cruise to the arctic?
