Think slipping down slides comes naturally to baby bears? (What's that? You've never given the topic much consideration? Honestly - what do you people think about all day?)

Anyway, it turns out that bears have to be coached in the fine art of sliding - and sometimes it takes a little while to get the hang of it.

Want proof? This video shows YouTuber Dennis Crossland teaching bear cub Morton how to use his slide at the former Woodland Zoo in Farmington, Pennsylvania. The zoo has since closed down, but you'll be pleased to hear that Morton continues to live a life of luxury at the nearby Nemacolin Woodlands Resort.

Ah, we love bears - don't you? Let's all wave at them...
