It is believed that mothers are a child’s first teacher and a lot of initial behavioural responses are learnt from them. However, the case is slightly different when it comes to mother animals teach basic skills to their cubs. Recently, a video of a bear teaching tree climbing to her cub in Nilgiri mountains has taken the internet by storm.
The video clip which was shared by IFS officer Sudha Ramen on Twitter shows a mama bear climbing a tree while her little one watches from the ground. Lauding the animal for her skills, the officer also asked people "look at the ease" with which she climbs. Hinting at the bear, Ramen also warned people that somebody “might be watching“ them when they go near forest or hills.

Nilgiris harbor a good variety of wildlife and tea gardens are always a comfortable place for the wild animals. Tea communities co exist peacefully with the wild life I'm these parts— Asheesh Talwani (@AsheeshTalwani) May 17, 2020
