Dear Polar-Bearologoists,

As a sheepy I am of course interested in the nature of left and right handedness !

yes I am !

See Ralph here ?


He's a cutey isn't he ? Wouldn't want to be a seal at his ice hole in a few years though !

Now I recently heard that most Polar bears are Left handed ?
why's that then ?..Why is there a good chance that Ralph will be doing his Polar Bear stuff in a left handed way ?...

Are there other species (except humans) which show a predominance for left or right handedness ?...Are there species that show complete ambidextrousnouss  ?(new word ! )

Let me and Ralph know will ya ?


Hugs & Shmishes

'Ambidexterity' might be the word you were looking for there.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

I wonder if it is genetic or just because thats the way its parent taught him! so he or she may mimic the parents teachings?
