A six-year-old and a giant grizzly bear played peek-a-boo. They both won.

Six-year-old Riley Sawyer had some fun playing a game of peek-a-boo with a giant grizzly bear at the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, South Carolina Wednesday.

It was all captured on video by her mom. 

The bears always seem to be really sweet and more playful at the end of the day.

Meagan Sawyer said the family often goes to the zoo. 

With that in mind, Riley wanted to make another visit to the bears before they left the zoo for the day and "the bear was really interested in her," Meagan Sawyer said.

"She has a little 8-month-old sister she loves playing peekaboo with and she just started playing it with the bear," she said.

The 6-year-old was "amazed" that the huge bear was interested in playing too.

Meagan Sawyer said her daughter loved the interaction and thought it was really funny. "I'm sure she will make sure we see plenty of the bears each time we go back."
