Go Bären

September 19, 2009

Go Bears.

Other bears one hears more about in Germany:

Waschbären —  “washing bears” which we call “raccoons”

Nasenbären —  “nose bears” which I guess we call “coatis”

Wasserbären — microscopic “bears” a.k.a. “tardigrades” that live everywhere there is moisture

Gummibären — well, you know, but they fetch more buzz because they taste so much better

Water bear, water bear! Where are you? Come out of your dark moss!

    The Russian bear is huge and wild,
    It has devoured the infant child,
    The infant child is not aware,
    It has been eaten by the bear
