As some of you may know, I love bears and have been pushing Discovery Channel to do a winter special called “Bear Week”. Winter is upon us once again and my demands have not been met so I am required to give you some fun facts about bears on my own. (In order by size of course)

- Some female polar bears deviate from the one room den. They build dens with multiple rooms and even a ventilation system in the roof.
- A polar bear’s fur is not white but hollow. The fur reflects light and traps the sun’s heat to help keep the polar bear warm.
- Polar bear’s fur is oily and water repellent allowing them to shake dry after swimming.
- Baby polar bears are much cuter than the baby seals they will soon be learning to hunt.
why yes, I was aware that I’m adorable
- Grizzly bear females have something called delayed implantation. After they mate with a male grizzly, the resulting fertilized embryo waits inside the female until the fall. If the mother has enough fat reserves to be able to sustain a pregnancy, the embryo will implant itself in the wall of her uterus. If she doesn’t have enough reserves, the embryo is simply reabsorbed into her system. Because of this delayed implantation, a female grizzly bear can carry more than one cub from more than one father, resulting in cubs from the same litter that don’t look like each other.
- For its size, a grizzly bear can run at an astonishing speed of 30 mph.
- The Grizzly gets it’s name from its white tipped or grizzled fur.
- Grizzly bears are the best bear.
you talking about me?
- Male and female black bears cannot tolerate each other’s company with the exception of the breeding period.
- Black bears are great climbers and some of them even make nest in hollowed trees up off the ground.
- Black bears are the most common bear found in the United States.
- Black bears aren’t as cute as the other bears.
I hope you learned a little something here today!
I had a dream that my girlfriend asked me to fart in front of her more so she could just get used to it. Almost as powerful as MLK’s
