More about me
I am a science librarian at CU Boulder. I have no pets, but I enjoy living in an area of town with lots of wildlife. I've seen foxes, bobcats, and black bears in my yard. Fortunately they don't eat our garden like the deer would like to!
This koala bear is very much not the sort of bear we see in Colorado. Differences between koala bears and black bears include:
- Diet: the black bear eats nearly anything; the koala eats only eucalyptus.
- Danger: it is unfair to either bear to bother it, but a black bear would be much more dangerous to bother.
- Size: black bears are considerably larger than koala bears.
I have seen black bears:
- in the zoo
- in my yard
- while hiking
Interested in excellent book about bears in the west? Rick Bass's The Lost Grizzlies is a good read. A pleasing quote:
"The mountains have always been here, and in them, the bears." [Text indentations are greyed out on my WYSIWYG editor. I am assuming this means they are deprecated?]
When I've completed this page, I'll help update some STS pages, like the section manual.
