VAIL, Colo. — Socials media feeds are plastered with duck-face selfies, but one Colorado bear apparently wants to start a new trend: bear-face selfies!

The Denver Zoo tweeted the image Saturday of a curious bear investigating a knocked-down wildlife camera that managed to grab a picture of the furry mammal.

The camera was placed in the area as part of a study to examine the benefit of a proposed wildlife overpass on Interstate 70. The image shows a date stamp of June 29, 2016.
