Even Black Bears Need a Break Once in a While

Yes, even black bears like to take a break every once and a while.

Rafael Torres snapped photos of this bear lying in a hammock in a Daytona Beach, Fla., neighborhood Thursday.

Torres told ABC affiliate WFTV in Orlando that the bear wandered through the neighborhood before climbing into the hammock. He said the bear stayed there for about 20 minutes, then headed back into the woods.

Apparently he was just resting up for the weekend.
