    How cute.
    I want one 🙂
    Not too sure what my dogs, cats, horses, sheep and chooks would think of it.. . Maybe the roos , emus, native birds, fish etc mightn’t like it much either 🙂

    If you’re allowed to do that, we should start a colony here. They’d be in plague proportions in no time. Might help to keep some of the mad scientists out of the area:

    Yes, very cute until the bear has a bad day or some hormone kicks in and someone’s head gets ripped off or the kid next door gets eaten. What is it that people don’t understand about wild animals? They aren’t cartoon characters and this particular one is a very large predator whose ancestors have been eating people for millennia. Assuming most people think this video is cute and adorable, it is yet another example of how out-of-touch most people are with ‘nature’ and wildlife.

    Best of luck in Las Vegas.

    PS – Of course there are some swimming animals that are actually cute and it is okay to suspend disbelief:

    PPS – My excuse is I have been travelling and missed this (covered by the Australian but not carried by our ABC by the way):

    Amazing video! I would NEVER EVER swim with a polar bear.

    However I did post an article at HubPages, which chronicles two ursine encounters that I heard from reputable sources.

    BTW, here’s a classic logic/geography puzzle:

    An intrepid adventurer decides to travel in the due West direction, until he returns to his starting point. Of course, he has an inflatable raft and climbing gear, in addition to the usual camping stuff. As he starts his journey, he notices a sleeping bear.

    After travelling 1000 miles (1600 km) due West, he returns to his starting point. And he sees the same sleeping bear.

    Question: What color is the bear?

    Larry, I’ll bite. I’d say it has to be a whitey.

    C’mon Larry. The guy was halucinating. There are no bears on Antarctica.

    Hi Gary,
    Spangled is right. At a sufficiently high latitude, one can head due West, and return to the starting point in 1000 miles. That far North, the Griz cannot survive. And that leaves only Polar Bears. Their hairs are hollow, and provide better insulation against the Arctic cold.

    That reminds me of a terrible joke. A mother Polar Bear and her cub are having a conversation.

    Cub: Mom, what kind of animal am I?
    Mother: You’re a Polar Bear, just like me.
    Cub: are you absolutely certain about that?
    Mother: Yes, I am. Why do you ask?
    Cub: Because I’m effing freezing!

    And yes, there are no bears in Antarctica. But I did not specify Nth or S hemisphere.
