This is the viral moment a huge bear makes a sound like a running engine when it sucks on the palm of its owner’s hand.

Andrey Ivanov, 39, shared the footage of his bear named Mansur on YouTube where it has gone viral with 1.2 million views.

In the video, filmed at the Orlovka air base in the south-eastern Russian region of Amur Oblast, Mansur is seen sucking on its owner’s palm while making a funny sound similar to a running car engine.

According to Ivanov, his five-year-old bear likes to suck on his palm every once in a while when it is missing him.

He added that Mansur also enjoys munching on apples and that the bear enjoys human company and gets stressed when it hasn’t seen anyone for a few hours.

Ivanov said that he found the wild bear cub five years ago near an aerodrome in the area.

The tiny cub was all alone and Ivanov decided to take it home and keep it as a pet.

Mansur lives with Ivanov and his colleagues at the air base and they built a shelter to cater for all its ‘bear necessities’.

Ivanov, who has a pilot’s licence, told local media that the bear enjoys flying in a plane and that he used to take him on flights regularly.

Netizen ‘Ivan Maksaev’ said: “It sounds like a diesel bear, but for some reason it only works on apple fuel.”

‘Givi Pomidoridze’ commented: “A fully-loaded lorry climbing up a hill. That is what springs to mind when I hear this cute bear.”
