This bear playing in a tub is having the best time ever

- A bear at the Oregon Zoo found the most adorable way to stay hydrated.

Video posted to the zoo's Facebook page of Takoda playing in a huge tub of water has been shared thousands of times and seen by millions.

Takoda was found as an orphan in Montana, but because of his close interactions with humans, he could not be released back into the wild.

He has been living at the Oregon Zoo since 2010 where he shares a habitat with three other bears, including "Cubby," a male bear that seemed to adopt Takoda shortly after his arrival. 

Takoda means "friend to all" in Sioux.
