This is the incredible moment a brave Arctic station worker let a polar bear lick his hand when it ventured close to his camp.
The video, filmed on the Russian island of Stobolvoy, captured the huge bear as it stood on its hind legs with its paws resting on an elevated wooden walkway.
It sniffed around the area for a few moments before taking note of the watching worker – who then made the brave decision to hold out his hand.
But the inquisitive bear did nothing more than lick at the filmer’s hand, turning its head away when he tried to pet the beast.
The scene was repeated twice more, the creature baring its teeth to the cameraman after flicking out its tongue.
