Mme Ourse se rafraîchit

Le couple d'ours dispose d'une grande mare et tandis que Mme aime nager et jouer dans l'eau , Mr Ours , lui, n'y fait que de brèves incursions juste le temps de se rafraîchir et Mme doit sortir quelques minutes le temps qu'il ait fini ...!

The bear’s female . The couple of bears has a large pond and while Mrs loves to swim and play in the water , Mr Bear only makes brief incursions there just until he cools down and Mrs must go out for a few minutes while he is finished...

Les ours au bain sont très amusants à regarder, ils s'éclatent et si je n'aimerais pas trop me retrouver dans l'eau avec celle-ci, je me verrais bien tout de même faire trempette
