I've been watching polar bear shows on Animal Planet and NGC and it seems male polar bears can weigh as much as 1500/1800 lbs and when standing be as tall as 15 feet. Guess my bathtub wouldn't last long as a nursery. I wonder what seal blubber's going for these days.....

Knut is a real nice polar bear.. but I must admit, it comes to times I can't hear anymore of him.. knut here, Knut there, Knut everywhere..
they change the TV Programm due to him and so I couldn't see my fave Tatort :D
but I enjoyed the Docu about him ;o)

When he gets bigger I'll help ya Urmaniac. Even as adults I find them adorable and hugely entertaining. I can watch them for hours.
