So much for these guys.

And there's no picture, but there's a video of a bald hedgehog here:

the lady bears are simply following the fashion trends...no one likes a big bush anymore.
WillieO Saturday Nov 7 06:28 PM
I think some Hollywood costume designer just found their next creature.
zippyt Saturday Nov 7 06:36 PM
Thats Night mare inducing !!!!!
Cloud Saturday Nov 7 06:37 PM
it seriously looks like a movie werewolf, doesn't it?

Stick a long tail on that thing and it would look just like a giant rat. Seriously, go look again.

It's a kangaliopottamus

I've always thought that bears were a cross between dogs and people. now i know i was right.
lumberjim Saturday Nov 7 09:10 PM
although,....there must be an elephant in the woodpile too.
Clodfobble Saturday Nov 7 09:37 PM
I showed Mr. Clod the picture without any captions... he guessed "a very sick lion, maybe?"
monster Saturday Nov 7 10:43 PM
bare bears. like balding men, though, they cultivate the beard to distract from the rest

That hedgehog video makes me sad. Poor little guy.

Having said the above, how about a recipe for bald hedgehog in a bald bear.

My cat has a very thin coat. He is accepted by other people because he is still covered in hair, but he does share some of the obvious underlying features of a Rex - compared to Mum's cat for example. The difference is, he is a breed, and he is plainly happy.

Shame they're trying to get by with the combovers. It doesn't work for Mort from Accounting, either.

I wasn't sure offhand what bears live in the Andes, but when I found a pic, immediately recognized Spectacled Bears. I have always liked them.

Fattest chupacabras I've ever seen. But if they are bears then they should have their thyroids checked. Or perhaps they have found a way to keep from becoming rugs?
Cloud Sunday Nov 8 09:49 PM
I think you're on to something; the zookeepers shaved them and are selling the fur to keep the zoo running

That's not a bear exactly. This is what happens when a bear mates with a Kangaroo.

Showed them to a doctor friend, and who guesses nutritional deficiency.

I am a total cryptozoology fan (much to my scientist husband's chagrin), not because I believe in bigfoots & sea serpents, but because I believe that many of the "legends" are based on sightings of anomalies & mutations of known species. The bears shown here are just what Im talkin' about. If I saw that in the woods Im not sure I could tell you what in the hell it was!

Good point, Londoners didn't know what the Elephant man was, either.
jujuwwhite Friday Nov 13 06:08 AM
That looks like Mange at it's worse!
capnhowdy Friday Nov 13 06:28 AM
Definitely unattractive, but you could dip a bear in shit and I'd still want to hug him.
