“If you talk to the animals, they will talk to you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them, you will not known them and what you do not know you will fear. What one fears, one destroys...” (Morris 2011) This is what we have been seeing happen to the Polar bears species. However, if we were to inform one another, we will be able to allow these species to survive and maintain their position as one of the largest land predator(s) in the world. As a result, our group had decided to analyze every aspect of Polar bears.
In terms of the grizzly bear, its behavior is complex, but should never be mistaken as mimicking human behavior. Craighead, Sumner, and Mitchell (1995) note that in Yellowstone National Park, a prime laboratory for studying human-grizzly interactions, the relationship has been uneasy at best. They note that bears have a concept of “personal space” and that “a seemingly placid animal (male or female) can become awesomely aggressive and attack instantaneously.” (Craighead et al.149-150). Treadwell, as many Yellowstone visitors do, made the mistake that just because the bears were tolerating his presence at one time meant that they had made up their minds about him and would leave him alone. This was an error of anthropomorphism, as the bears were clearly not perceiving him the way another human would, i.e., as friend or foe; their lack of reaction to him didn’t mean that they saw him as a friend. This was a fairly stupid assumption for Treadwell to have made, particularly given his professed knowledge of and fascination with the bears.
The Halo Effect is the cognitive bias that generalizes that if an individual has one outstanding favorable character trait, the rest of that individual’s trait will be favorable. Specific to physical attractiveness, this is known as the “Attractiveness Halo.” Attractiveness plays an important role in determining social interactions. In fact, the physical attractiveness of an individual is a vital social cue utilized by others to evaluate other aspects of that individual’s abilities (Kenealy, Frude, & Shaw, 2001). Because of the attractiveness halo, attractive applicants trying to enter the workforce tend to
The bear have evolved along time ago and now there is only eight species existing. They evolved from early canids during the late Oligocene and early Miocene, about 25 million years ago. The earliest ancestors where the Dormaalocyon Latouri. An intermediate ancestor was the short faced bear, very similar to the modern day bear. It lived through the pleistocene period. It grew to thirteen feet long and was a herbivore. The ancestors to the modern day bears lived in the same climate and ate the same things. The modern bear contrast from the ancestor because the ancestor was more skinny and was smaller, and it was more cat like. The eight species of bear that still exist. They are the Polar bear, Brown bear, American black bear, Asian
The Grizzly Bear is one of nature’s last keystone species that is contributing to the Western United states and Southwestern Canada. The Grizzly Bear is thought of as a vicious beast who kills people without intent. Grizzly Bears are actually important to the environment and ecosystem that they live in. This Bear is an intelligent animal, which serves a role of preserving a plant’s way of life. It creates soil disturbance which causes more nitrogen to be produced to generate more nutrients for plants.
The trophy hunting of at-risk grizzly bears is a controversial topic in Canada. It is part of the Canadian cultural inheritance. Hunting grizzly bears are considered to be a legitimate recreational activity in some parts of Canada. They inhabit in the forest and near the costal line. The numbers of bear reached tens of thousands before, but because they are fierce and threatening human beings, they are being hunted and killed. Also, the low mortality rate of grizzly means low population, but they play a critical role as a predator in the ecosystem. The problem is over-hunting and industrialization will cause extinction of this rare species, and lead to disharmony between the government and First Nations. I mainly support the ban of grizzly
When most people hear the word black bear, they think about the cute little cubs, running around and playing with each other, and not what makes them such intriguing animals, considering they are only found in North America, and are the smallest of the bear family.
A few of these remaining species are extremely close to extinction and if we don’t do something soon we may very well lose them good. They’re becoming extinct from the destruction of their natural habitat.
The Grizzly Bear, or Ursus arctos horribilus, is the second largest land based carnivore in all of North America. It has a life expectancy of twenty years, and the average male Grizzly Bear can reach an astounding three hundred fifty kilograms. While there are many bears that have the same brown coloring as the Grizzly, these are easily spotted due to their anatomy. The Grizzly Bear has a large hump or protrusion on its back, near the area of the shoulder blades. This mass of tissue and muscle helps to support the enormous front legs of the bear. Other distinctive characteristics of the Grizzly Bear include a concave snout, extremely long claws, and poor eyesight. Though dark brown is the most commonly viewed fur color, the Grizzly can be any shade from ivory to nearly black.
Grizzly bears are a very unique type of bear. The bear has long sharp rounded claws. They also have large muscles in their back that help them dig. The bear has grizzled fur to help distinguish them from black bears. It is very important that we do everything to protect the Grizzly population.
Panda Bears are adorable. They are very resourceful and family-oriented. This is part of the reason I love them, and am do a report over them. They make me all warm and cuddly inside. Panda’s are most widely known for their black and white coat of fur. I find this their cutest feature. It’s going to be a “Pandemonium” of time.
In the scientific article, “Love in the Time of Climate Change: Grizzlies and Polar Bears Now Mating,” by Adam Popescu, believes that climate change is helping to cause grizzlies and polar bears to mate. He points out that glacier sheets are retreating, this forces the polar bears to move into grizzly’s territory. Moreover, that the permafrost is also starting to melt, which is causing grizzlies to wander into the polar bears territory. Consequently, he goes on to put that because of this mating, the grizzlies are eating up the polar bears genetically. He concludes that if this trend keeps up, in a few decades any kind of the bear population in this area will be no more. Lastly, the author’s purpose is to make readers aware of the hidden effects
2 of the greatest golfers in the history of the game, Jack Nicolas and Arnold Palmer, made an impact on the game of golf like no other. Between the 2 of them, they have broken records, and still hold records to this day. Jack Nicolas, also known as the "Golden Bear", still hold the record for the most majors won in a career, with 18 of them. Arnold Palmer, also known as the "King", has the 5th most PGA tour wins in history. Between the two of them they have won 25 majors.
