This is a wild fox who lives in the Chernobyl nuclear exclusion zone in Ukraine. And here, you can watch him assemble a "five-decker sandwich."

According to the BBC, a team from Radio Free Europe had encountered the fox after stopping their cars near the nuclear power plant. The humans tossed the fox some bread and pieces of sausage, and the animal promptly -- and expertly -- went about creating a “quintuple-decker sandwich.”

Radio Free Europe notes that humans haven't occupied the exclusion zone since the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986. "There now appears to be an increasing number of foxes, wolves, and bears" in the area, the news outlet writes.

The video of the fox has gone viral this week, as netizens everywhere praise the animal for his sandwich-making skills.

“Who needs opposable thumbs when you have teeth?” quipped Time.com.
