You can stop what you are doing right now and spend the rest of your day watching this infant orphan bear cub named Mike roll around in a pile of sheets.

The four-week-old bear cub and his brother Ike were brought into the Woodlands Wildlife Refuge three weeks ago after their mother was shot by a hunter in self-defense.

Unfortunately, Ike also died last week after being rescued, but Mike is doing well, according to the Woodlands, and he will be with them until March before he is hopefully placed into foster care of another mother bear.

Until then you can watch Mike's progress here 24/7.

"If he is not in view, he will re-appear shortly," the Woodlands says. "We are not responsible for bodily functions that may happen between feedings. Please 'bear' with us."

They are also accepting donations to the center on their site.

Animal of the Day: Lioness Really Wants to Play With or Eat Baby

A thick pane of glass is all that stands between this female lion and lunch.

Zari, a 7-year-old African lioness at the El Paso Zoo, was captured on video "playing' with this kid back in December.

She is either really fascinated by children, or she really wants to eat them.

The zoo says the animals are just curious, and that the glass is definitely strong enough to protect anyone from harm, so there isn't anything to worry about here.

"When some of our lions see little kids, it seems like it calls attention to them and they want to check them out," a zoo spokesperson told TODAY.com. "She was just trying to play, and the baby was so close. The baby is safe behind a really thick window, which is made so that visitors can see the animals up close."

But lion expert Craig Packer told The Daily Mail that the beasts like to play with babies before eating them.

"Predators generally treat calves/fawns/babies differently from adults because they are such easy prey; there's no real chance of escape, so what's the hurry?" he said.

Yup, she just wants to check him out… with her teeth.
