Obama Shares Selfie In The Wild With Bear Grylls

"Glad this was the only Bear I met in the park."

President Barack Obama shared a selfie with Bear Grylls in the wild after the two taped an episode of Grylls' survival show in Alaska on Tuesday.

Obama taped an episode during a trip to Alaska to focus on climate change. Some have called that effort hypocritical.

On the show, called "Running Wild With Bear Grylls," Grylls takes celebrities into the wild and teaches them survivalist techniques. Past guests have included Michelle Rodriguez (who ate a mouse on the show), Michael B. Jordan and Ed Helms.

The episode of the show with Obama will air on NBC later this year.
