A Bear of a Different Color

Another great image from MSNBC's Week in Pictures!

Pelusa, a 14-year-old female polar bear, sticks her paw through the bars of her cage July 21 at the Mendoza Zoo, northwest of Buenos Aires. Normally white, Pelusa turned violet after veterinarians administered a medicine to treat her for a skin condition. Her veterinarians said her coat should turn normal again within a month.

i can just hear the other polar bears. "man what's up with her. doesn't she realize winter's coming soon. talk about being inconspicuous!"

it freaked me out when I first saw the picture though, the colours is gorgeous, but out of place and i am still wondering what in the medication, caused that type of reaction.

My daughter and I were looking at that photo earlier this week, she asked if they came in different colors!

Isnt that like cutting off the nose to spite the face? The poor thing looks embarrassed. No. Wait. I'm embarrassed for it!
