Polar Bear streaming video by Lounge Trekker on 9 March 2007 1:13am
 
Don't worry, these guys are quite a distance from where I live. About 3000kms northeast. It is interesting to see these guys. I've seen them wrestling...pretty cool.

Most adult males weigh 300-600 kg (660-1320 lb) and measure 2.4-2.6 m (7.9-8.5 ft) in length. Adult females are roughly half the size of males and normally weigh 150-300 kg (330-660 lb), measuring 1.9-2.1 m (6.25-7 ft).

At birth, cubs weigh only 600-700 g or about a pound and a half.

I just love bears of any sort!Grizzlies and Polar are my favourites.Awesome creatures.

I reckon I could beat a grizzly but one of them big white guys would make me scared!!

Speaking of wildlife, here's this year's live eagle cam. There's already an egg in the nest but it hasn't hatched yet. They'll follow the progress until the chick or chicks leave the nest. I checked in every day last year.

http://www.briloon. org/ed/eagle/ index.htm -- click where it says "LIVE VIDEO" - you will need to "refresh" after a short period of filming but it is a continuous live video.

Those sites are interesting! If you guys are interested, here's a link to a 24 hour a day live African wildlife camera set up at a watering hole.

Pete have you ever heard of drop bears? They lurk about in trees and drop on unsuspecting victims below at night. At least that's wot we tell the tourists ;)
