Okay, so this isn’t exactly a “new” species story but it’s interesting nonetheless.
The first Polar bear / Grizzly bear hybrid found in the wild has been genetically confirmed to be the offspring of a female polar bear and a male Grizzly bear. A man who paid somewhere around $50,000 to hunt Polar bears shot and killed the male bear back in April.
Some names floating around are Polargrizz, Grolar bear, Nanaluk, Pizzly, or simply half-breed. What would you name this new hybrid species? And do you think this is a sign of things to come or just a fluke?
