Footage released on Friday shows a black bear appearing to 'dance' at a national park in Vladivostok known as 'The Land of the Leopard.' The black bear can be seen rubbing its nose and back against a birch tree in order to leave its scent and mark its territory.

Black bears are non-gregarious and thus territorial. Male black bears are known to have territories as vast as 80 square miles (207 square kilometres) which is to ensure sufficient food for themselves and their cubs.

This video footage was originally shot in November but only recently uncovered by scientists.
