    Check out these animals!!!


    Pelusa, a fourteen-year-old female polar bear, look through the bars of her cage at Mendoza's Zoo, some 1,200 kilometers (750 miles) west of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Tuesday, July 22, 2003. Pelusa, normally white, turned violet after veterinarians administered a drug to treat a skin's infection. Veterinarians said she should turn to her normal color within a month.

    They're all adorable even the croc!-Poor purple Polar bear! Personally, I think she looks great-wonder if she has to touch up her roots?

    UH...I can't understand how a polar bear would have her fur turned voilet

    While they look white polar bears have really have no pigment in their fur.
    If you're listening to this song
    You may think the chords are going wrong
    But they're not
    We just wrote it like that

    When you're listening late at night
    You may think the band are not quite right
    But they are, they just play it like that

    It doesn't really matter what chords I play
    What words I say or time of day it is
    As it's only a Northern song

    It doesn't really matter what clothes I wear
    Or how I fare or if my hair is brown
    When it's only a Northern song

    If you think the harmony
    Is a little dark and out of key
    You're correct, there's nobody there

    And I told you there's no one there

    The first two could have been easily photoshopped. Which I'm sure they were. How in the heck would the rats whole cage/surroundings glow?

    Okay never mind I did a search on the polar bear and they were using a spray that apparently turned her fur purple...I think.

    Why would they want to turn it purple?

    Poor Polar Bear.

    It was an antibiotic spray to treat a skin condition and was not PhotoShopped. The chemicals reacted with her fur and turned her purple. Her caregivers have to keep her out of the water and isolated from her mate until the medication clears up her skin condition and then she'll be allowed be back with her mate. He's sulking at the separation right now - poor bear. Normal Polar Bear swimming and bathing and will make her lose her punk rock do. I saw this pic last week and thought it was an unfortunate side effect of nurturing an ailing animal.
