Oh, hey there – or, should we say, oh, hey bear?

Children at Tokyo's Ueno Zoo were greeted by a very friendly (not to mention adorable) polar bear on their Wednesday visit to its exhibit.

Nearly submerged in water, the well-mannered animal then held out his paw to one of the lucky zoo visitors. High-five? The bear's attempt at shaking hands? We're not sure, but we do know this: This zoo encounter is un-bear-ably cute. And we'd be ever so pleased to meet this bear buddy, too.
