Does this bear want to play with this little boy – or eat him? Thankfully, there's a thick pane of glass between them so we'll never know.

Instead, we can just enjoy the cuteness of their interaction as witnessed by the boy's dad and posted to Rumble.

The boy, called Gabriel, was filmed standing next to the bear, which sits partially submerged in the water in a North American zoo.

Gabriel asks his dad if he's safe and his dad jokily replies: "That's pretty strong glass, hopefully."
