I can still remember how magical it was to watch the pandas and polar bears when I was a kid. It was simply amazing to think that there was something that gargantuan, that lethal, and somehow also that cute only separated from me by a railing and a ten foot drop.
Bears are definitely amazing, and as pop culture shifts to include these furry predators, fun is being redefined in terms of graphics. These sometimes cute and other times ferocious depictions take bounds of artistic license and are miles away from a trip to the zoo. Now you just have to choose a species. Hmmm.
