Knowing Your Bears

How to discern the difference between bears? A good question. An important question. I first offer you this advice Yoda gave Luke about knowing the difference between the good and the dark side of the force, which I feel applies here as well:

You will know. When you are calm, at peace. Passive.

If that doesn’t help, then I offer you this pictorial:

    Man, I don’t even know about the zombies. Backpacker didn’t mention anything about them. I’ll write to Backpacker to point out their crass oversight.
