Cape Town - Yikes! The Aquaman star has got a new furry friend.

Jason Momoa recently shared a clip of a grizzly bear eating a biscuit out of his mouth all in preparation for a scene in his new Apple TV+ series, See, E News reported.

In the Instagram post, the 40-year-old can be seen crouching with a golden cookie in his mouth when he’s approached by a brown grizzly.
