BBC’s 'Planet Earth 2' goes viral again with this amazing footage of bears in the wild

Environment

The BBC's critically-acclaimed "Planet Earth" series is one of the most-watched documentaries of all time, with a high of 8.8 million viewers during an episode and is one of the most frequently streamed titles on Netflix. The BBC has recently released the sequel, "Planet Earth II," in the UK, and it quickly earned the title of the most-watched nature show in 15 years, receiving up to 12.26 million views an episode, which accounts for almost 41 percent of television watchers. The clips that have been released on the internet have only whetted the appetite of American "Planet Earth" fans, who have been eagerly awaiting the series' U.S. release next month.

First came the incredible footage of a small iguana making an incredible escape from a snake-infested area. Now, with the release of "Planet Earth II" in America just weeks away, another BBC One "Planet Earth" clip is making the rounds across the internet, but with a much different tone.

Grizzly bears, which can grow up to eight feet tall and weigh up to 1,500 pounds, live around the world in several different types of habitats, one of which is a dense forest area populated with trees. Living among the tall trees, a bear sometimes has to get creative when he finds himself with an itch he can't quite scratch. The solution is delightfully entertaining.

"Planet Earth II" premieres in the United States on BBC America Feb. 18.
