The Majestic Beast Nanuk

The large polar bear Nanuk in Inuktitut is an impressive animal. In this photo, we can see him crossing between two pieces of sea glacier, or we can imagine him trying to hold it as it melts.

Isn't this so much better than looking at a miserable polar bear pacing around his cell with little ice cubes to suck on?

At first I thought it was just little piles of salt then I realized they were people in them. That must be an interesting job!
