The Grizzly-polar bear hybrid was discovered, and killed, on Banks Island, Northwest Territories, Canada, reportedly in April 2006.

The bear was shot by an American hunter. Later, officials took interest in the creature after noticing that the bear had thick, creamy white fur, typical of polar bears, as well as long claws; a humped back; a shallow face; and brown patches around its eyes, nose, back, and one foot, which are all traits of grizzly bears


Wow...a rarity in nature...and someone has to kill it... :-P

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

Stephen Colbert notified us of this last week. Check out the link and then click on the one that says ThreatDown: Bear Hybrids. http://www.comedycentral.com/shows/the_colbert_report/videos/threatdown/index.jhtml

A DNA test confirmed that it was a hybrid.[1] It is the first documented case in the wild,[2] though it was known that this hybrid was possible and other ursid hybrids have been bred in zoos in the past. The grizzly bear and polar bear are sufficiently close genetically that it is thought that their offspring may be fertile, which would mean that they were the same species.


It would be pretty cool to see, but this makes it sound like it's really not that unique, if they've been bred in captivity.

Zoologists are still theorizing how the hybrid came into being.
