Humans have worshiped the bear from a time older than memory. Perhaps this fascination comes from the bearís humanlike qualities. Like us, bears stand upright on the soles of their feet and have their eyes facing froward nearly in the frontal plane. They seem to worry with moans and sighs and court with obvious affection. Bears also snore in their sleep, teach, play, spank their children, are avid for sweets, and have a moody, gruff and morose side.
