A cute bear cub climbed over its mother’s back and interrupted her afternoon nap.

Wildlife filmmaker Barrett Hedges captured the adorable scene taking place in National Park, Alaska, in footage uploaded on March 15.

As mama bear was trying to fall asleep on a patch of grass by a puddle, her two cubs kept moving around her in a frenzy.

One of them even climbed on her back and changed position numerous times until she finally surrendered and sat up.

Barrett said: “That year was the first time I had ever seen a bear cub on its mother’s back, it is incredibly rare behaviour. 

“It was awesome, I was laughing because it was so funny seeing the cub move around and bother its mother. 

“I couldn’t believe she tolerated it for so long.”
