I remember visits to the circus, when I was little. Funny clowns, deft acrobats, trained animals. What I liked most there were the animals, especially dogs and bears. There were dancing bears, bears riding a bicycle. They all were so cute! Here are some pictures of wild bears, which were not trained, but can be as funny as those bears from the circus.

When I was looking through my collection of the photos of bears, I noticed that bears have a strong resemblance to dogs. Later I found out, that they are relatives – bears are doglike carnivorans.

By the way, the closest living relatives of bears are pinnipeds. This is why they swim so well.
