Polar and grizzly bears are very different kinds of bear. Their migrations, habitats and food preferences are quite contrasting. So you'd think the chances of them mating would be rare. Yet more and more offspring of the two are being found in the wild. See, the two species share an ancestor—itself the hybrid of polar and grizzly bears from 120,000 years ago—that died out during the ice age when some adapted to the cold while others headed south. Now, with this recent period of global warming, the new (ancient) species is coming back again! So—what do you get when you cross a polar and a grizzly bear? Meet the pizzly. Or the grolar. Bear with us, we'll settle on a name eventually.
