THE WHITE BEAR

A White Bear and his cub

Image description:

A White Bear and his cub in the Cyhalloian Tundra. This large carnivorous beast is known for its good swimming skills and especially their unusual "Death Ritual", where they search for crimson rose fields when they know that they are going to die. Smelling the sedative effect of the flower they enter a deep sleep from which they never wake up again. Image drawn by Bard Judith.
