Have you ever seen such a rare creature as I am? I live in the Great Bear Rainforest. Legend has it that when the world started to turn green when the glaciers that had gripped the land for so long finally started to thaw, the black bears living in my neck of the woods were privileged ever afterwards to have every tenth bear born being my beautiful, creamy white colour, as a reminder of those long-ago icy times. Every winter, I curl up in my cosy den, wrap a paw around my dark nose, I shut my brown eyes tight and hibernate peacefully until it’s springtime again. I’m very hungry when I emerge, I can tell you! I feast on anything, from fish to berries, mushrooms and hazelnuts – but I’m a gentle creature and promise not to eat you. But I might growl as fiercely as I can and chase you up a tree if you ever insult me by calling me a polar bear!Find Food
Your pet becomes an expert at finding its own food!The Quarter Mile
The Quarter Mile begins with running away from cats. Great big cats with huge teeth and claws that like the taste of anything that can’t run fast enough to get away. Of course when Frank the Pig put an end to killing and eating, that left a lot of fabulous natural athletes with nothing to do all day but graze. Some are happy like that. Others point scornfully at Milky Moo Cows and pour contempt on moon jumping. But the cows reply, “we have our own sport. What have you got that’s so special?”
Big quadrupeds didn’t like the idea of opal tossing or weightlifting, and how could they sail or climb trees? When the cows said they were running away from the idea of sport, the answer was obvious; who can run like a big powerful quadruped? All you need is a start and a finish point, and a crowd.
