Most children like a teddy bear to cuddle up to, but this huge 50-stone grizzly is something else!
In these stunning photographs, young children play and nap with the enormous brown bear. They appear to be completely fearless as they engage in such activities with the massive creature.
The pictures were taken in a forest in Moscow by photographer Olga Barantseva from Russia.
She said: “The bear is very friendly. He loves hugging people. He’s just like a huge dog.
“Some of the children were scared at first, but it was hard to separate them by the end.
“After all, every kid wants a big teddy bear.”
