Former Buffalo Zoo polar bear mimics visitor's workout

Kali, a polar bear who lived at The Buffalo Zoo from May 2013 to April 2015, has become a viral sensation.

According to St. Louis Magazine, a St. Louis Zoo visitor did burpees (a more agile form of pushups) in front of the polar bear exhibit, and Kali was quick to catch on to the workout.

The orphaned male polar bear, now 3 years old, was originally saved by a hunter in Alaska before being sent to Buffalo to live with Luna, the current polar bear resident in The Buffalo Zoo. A year ago, news broke that Kali would be transferred, via FedEx, to St. Louis. He seems to be faring well.

No word on how long Luna can hold her plank.
