An adult male polar bear starts his day with a little exercise and sightseeing. (Well, more like watching sightseers.) By picking just the right spot, a few well executed pushups earn him a better view into the big white contraption, known as a tundra buggy, stopped before him where eager humans position themselves for a better view of the curious bear.
