NICK EICHER, HOST: Last November, researchers near Boulder, Colorado, set up trail cameras to learn more about wildlife in Colorado Parks. On one night alone, a single camera captured 580 images.

MYRNA BROWN, HOST: That's a lot of wildlife.

EICHER: Yeah, you'd think. But of those 580 pictures? About 400 of them were of the same bear! Every possible angle that you can imagine: full-on, three-quarters, profile, a paw, with his tongue out—lots and lots of close-ups!

BROWN: Well, we all know you have to take a lot of pictures to get just the right look!

EICHER: All those selfies, though. Probably a millennial bear.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
