A video posted to the Oregon Zoo’s YouTube page this week shows a black bear enjoying a bath in a tub.

In the video, Takoda is belly up and playing with toys in the tub as he tries to stay afloat.

The video was posted to YouTube on June 4 and was taken by zookeeper Philip Fensterer.

Takoda, which means “friend to all” in Sioux, was orphaned in Montana and has called the Portland zoo home since November 2010.
