He loves the camera, and the camera loves him: A black bear in the US state of Colorado has extensively tested a camera trap and taken hundreds of pictures of himself. His fan base is growing.


In the US state of Colorado, a bear fell into a photo trap hundreds of times at a nature park.

The curious black bear discovered one of the nine cameras set up by the park administration to monitor the area.

The bear triggered the camera 400 times.

The tweet from the park administration with the photo series went viral, in the comments the bear was christened "Kimbearly Kardashian" – after the reality TV star Kim Kardashian.

Black bears are solitary and usually tend to be secretive, according to a report from the Colorado Wildlife Parks Administration.

Therefore, there is no precise information about how many black bears live in Colorado.

According to conservative estimates, there were up to 20,000 animals in 2015.

The purpose of the cameras was to collect information about wildlife in the area so that they could be better protected, it said.

Normally they would be ignored by the animals.

The bear selfies were taken a few months ago, park officials said.
