Bear Fact Friday

bear2

 

The sloth bear has the shaggiest fur. The sun bear has the shortest fur so it can keep cool in the hot forests of Southeast Asia.

The most accurate way to determine the age of a bear is to count the rings in a cross section of its tooth root under a microscope.

Koala bears are not bears at all and are not related to the bear family. They are marsupials.

In 2004, a black bear was found unconscious in a campground in Seattle, Washington. It had broken into a cooler and used its claws and teeth to open dozens of beer cans. Although it sampled other types of beer, it chose to drink all the cans of only one type of beer. After its drinking binge, the bear passed out.

Polar bears are the only bear species that is a marine mammal.

A polar bear’s fur ranges in color from ivory to pale tan. Underneath its fur coat, the polar bear’s skin is black to help absorb heat from the sun.

For many years, scientists thought that the Giant Panda was not a bear at all but a relative of the raccoon. Scientists have shown through DNA evidence that giant pandas are indeed true bears.

  1. Ha – so bear teeth are like trees and bears are as fussy as my Hubby when it comes to beer. A drunk bear staggering around may have been funnier than a passed out bear though I guess it could have looked more scary then funny. I have visions of a drunk bear trying to chat up a female bear – badly……

    I don’t think I have my work head on today…..

    but what beer? seems to me a prepared camper should have the appropriate beverage of choice on hand … it would just be rude otherwise.
