The newest threat to polar bear health and well-being: Saturday Night Fever. And the boogie-woogie flu. We can probably live with that.

Photographer Steven Kazlowski caught this polar bear (he swears it is not just a guy in a bear suit) getting down with his bad self in Alaska. Reportedly he’s just trying to keep his balance while standing up, but that’s clearly just a story made up to cover the fact that bears have learned to send complicated dance-based messages like bees. This one is calling upon you to save the Arctic by ending global warming, and also to feed him a fish.
