I read once where a big tom cat that enjoyed killing birds attacked a hawk which had a broken wing in a sling. That bird ( which has thin hollow bones ) tore up the cat ( which has some fairly dense bones ). In other words - stupid argument.

Regarding Bone Density:"Polar bears have denser fore- and hind limb bones, a common adaptation of aquatic mammals, than closely related brown bears, further supporting this interpretation."~ Wall WP (1983) The correlation between high limb-bone denisty and aquatic habits in recent mammals.

BrotherBear wrote:Polar bear is longer and taller bipedal because of his aquatic adaptations, longer body and neck. The coastal brownie has more robust shoulders and neck with a more massive skull. The brownie has greater upper body strength and much more powerful jaws. Even should the polar bear have 200 or even 300 pound weight advantage ( which would be above average ) the brown bear is stronger.
As for the minute bone density advantage issue ... a stupid argument to begin with. Ursus arctos middendorffi ( the poster ) has explained to Vodmeister on numerous occasions just how ridiculous his claims are. But, the spoiled kid continues on...

But, just exactly how much research have you done on the subject of polar bears and whales? There is information here http://shaggygod.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=cetacea from those who have. I know from past experience that you have very little knowledge on the subject of bears. In your mind, if a lion can't do it, nothing can.
Lions are truly the king of beasts, in both action, and looks!
