The zoo released a video of 10-year-old Takoda, a 400-pound black bear, playin gin the water.

“The warm weather is starting to come on, and Takoda loves splashing around in his tub,” said Amy Cutting, who oversees the zoo’s Great Northwest area. “He’s quite a goofy bear. He was just cooling down and having some fun on a nice spring day.”
