Boy plays with beaver

Boy waves at beaver, beaver waves back

This little boy has learnt from a very young age that beavers make you happy in life, very very happy. Little Ryan was at Oregon Zoo in the United States with his mum when he started waving at a beaver. Nothing in that apart from the fact that the beaver starts waving back.

With mum giggling as she films, boy and beaver keep up their contact, no doubt becoming the best of friends.

Both parties are cramped up close against the glass divider, and both could seemingly wave their little hands forever.
