One bear in particular was really feeling himself, as of the 580 pictures the cameras captures, over 400 were selfies of this one bear!

Open Space and Mountain Parks senior wildlife ecologist Will Keeley said per Fox News the trap cameras are a research tool for the parks.

"The motion-detecting cameras provide us a unique opportunity to learn more about how local species use the landscape around us while minimizing our presence in sensitive habitats," he said.

Slay, bear.  Slay.
