WIKI WONDER

Everyone has heard of Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, but did you know about WikiQuotes, Wikiversity, WikiBooks, WikiCommons, WikiNews and Wiktionary?  You can find these and more at wikimedia.org.

polar-bearscommons.wikimedia.org is a good place to go for royalty-free art you can use anywhere.species.wikimedia.org gives you a “species of the week” and lots of animal facts. When we checked it was about polar bears. We learned that an adult male weighs around 770–1,500 pounds, while an adult female is about half that size. They’re fast and smart too, so don’t mess with the bear.  (By the way: Bob thinks it’s pretty interesting that not only is the North American Grizzly Bear the largest mammalian carnivore on Earth, it is the largest mammalian carnivore that has ever lived on Earth.)
