You can’t get much closer to a polar bear than researcher Gordon Buchanan. In fact, the only way to get closer would be to end up in one’s stomach — which this polar bear tried everything it could to make happen.

Luckily, the Buchanan is in a container made up of plexiglass and metal to keep him out of reach. But that doesn’t mean he didn’t start to get at least a little worried.

The polar bear eventually realizes it’s more trouble than it’s worth and goes looking for an easier meal. Which is good, because we imagine that’s as close as Buchanan ever wants to get to a polar bear again.

Too close for comfort!
