You never know what you might capture with a wildlife camera. Maybe a coyote and badger acting like buds. Or human pranksters disguised as animals. Or 400 selfies of the same bear.

The open space and mountain parks team in the city of Boulder, Colorado uses an array of nine automated cameras on its 46,000 acre land system. One of these cameras caught sight of some entertaining bear antics. “Recently a bear discovered a wildlife camera that we use to monitor wildlife in the Boulder open space,” OSMP tweeted last week. “Of the 580 photos captured, approximately 400 were bear selfies.”

The bear incident happened in November last year. Motion detection triggers these cameras, which is how a bear managed to take so many selfies. “The information we gather from them is used to recommend habitat protection measures to help protect sensitive natural areas,” OSMP senior wildlife ecologist Will Keeley said in a release about the cameras last year.

Besides black bears (which don’t always have black fur), the cameras have seen bobcats, mountain lions, owls and deer. It seems the bear, however, was more of a ham than the other creatures. Forget duck-faced selfies. The new hot selfie pose is bear face.
