These brave models show no fear as they pose with bears, tigers and wolves in scenes straight from the pages of a fairy tale.
The enchanting snaps show the models cuddling up to the deadly animals and even taking naps with the often unpredictable creatures. In true storybook style, the images were taken deep in a forest just outside Moscow and were shot by photographer, Olga Barantseva.
The bear, Stepan, is a 700-pound grizzly bear adopted by a Russian couple when he was just 3 months old. He is so tame that he watches television with his adoptive parents and often poses for Barantseva during photo shoots. (Caters News)
