What makes a Bear...a Bear? Does one need to spend long summer days wading in a river? Perhaps it requires swatting wildly at passing salmon as if you were at a triple-speed conveyor-belt sushi joint? We say no! A Bear is a Bear, even when chewing a croissant on a couch in a coffee shop! For, truly, it is the furriness, the pleasant plumpitude, the bear hug that only a Bear can give, that is the final arbiter of its inclusion in the family Ursidae!
