  • I saw a bear this morning

    haven't seen one in awhile
    I guess they hibernate, even in Florida.

    he/she/it was not black in color
    was more of a cinnamon..

    hopefully it goes back to sleep
    otherwise I'm going to be fighting garbage wars with them soon

    Black bears (the type Florida bears are) do not hibernate instead they experience what is often called 'partial hibernation' or 'winter lethargy

          Being cinnamon isn't uncommon for black bears.

          Did you know that although they are called black bears, colors can range from black to cinnamon brown, silver-blue and, occasionally, even white? The white bears are called "Spirit" or "Kermode" bears.

            Those are tapirs, and they're from the wrong latitude.

                The last time I saw a bear in the wild was in Florida too. My dad was stationed at Tyndall and I was out running and saw a cub. It was really cute, but I knew it was time to move away slowly and sure enough, I saw mom off by a tree.

                  A bear? I saw pink scorpions and a blue panda smoking a pipe.

                  But I have been drinking heavily.

                    I know they come in different colors..
                    I have seen this cinnamon one before..
                    he was definitely in a torpor..
                    he crossed the street like a drunk..
                    .

                    FWIW I would bet there are at least 7 identifiable bears living in my area..

                    just pointing out they dissappear for quite some time in the winter months and it is noteworthy to see one this time of year.

                    I did get a picture last year..

                          Many southern bears are cinnamon colored. I have no idea why. I'm told I didn't leave them, there are bears and especially cougars here, I've ran off a cougar already.

                              I saw a raccoon or a possum, they are larger than a demestic cat. Quite scary!

                              kangaroos are quite dangours , even though, they look harmless.
