    Fun fact: a piece of that stretch in eastern Arkansas is the White River NWR. Houses the only population of black bears in Arkansas that didn't have to be re-introduced. I love that place.

    I think that is tinted from the polar bear coloring.

    I'm a huge dog guy, but I have wondered how cool it would've been if humans had domesticated bears instead of wolves.

    I was surprised to see bears only in the coastal region of SC and not the upstate mountainous region. Any SC wildlife experts know who these coast bears are?

    I stumbled into this one the other day, which I think is completely fascinating.

    If you went to sleep on September 2nd 1752 in the British Empire you would wake up on September 14th, 1752. Additionally, 1751 only had 282 days.

    This all relates to the adoption of the Gregorian (vs. Julian) calendar.

    Many believe Wolves sought out humans and not the other way around.

    Humans and dogs are the perfect match

    Agree on both comments. I just think it'd be fun to see the varieties of bear offshoots (German Shepherd bear, boxer bear, etc. No interest in golden doodle bear.)

    In North America, two types of the subspecies Ursus arctos horribilis are generally recognized—the coastal brown bear and the inland grizzly bear; these two types broadly define the range of sizes of all brown bear subspecies.

    Multiple morphological forms sometimes recognized as subspecies exist, including the mainland grizzly (Ursus arctos horribilis), Kodiak bear (U. a. middendorffi), peninsular grizzly (U. a. gyas), and the extinct California (U. a. californicus†),[2][3]Mexican (U. a. nelsoni†), and Ungava-Labrador (U. a. ungavaesis†) grizzlies.[4][5] On average, bears near the coast tend to be larger while inland grizzlies tend to be smaller.

    The Ussuri brown bear (U. a. lasiotus), inhabiting Russia, Northern China, Japan, and Korea,[3][6][7] is sometimes referred to as the "black grizzly", although it is a different subspecies from the bears in America.

    Probably the same as the NC black bears that populate the rural areas along the coast plains. I'd guess they've expanded down into SC over time as they really don't have any predators and most of the hunting happens in the mountains.

    I grill squash and zucchini pretty regularly. Buy it when it’s not growing season from the stores otherwise it’s the local farmers market or extra from people at work.

    I believe the new school of thought is a knife down the middle of the head and body is more humane than boiling then alive. If you're grilling, I'd just continue to cut lengthwise down the tail and grill the two halves with the inside facing down.
