The Polar Bear is dependent on sea ice to live in this harsh environment.

Among fin-footed animals, sea lions are the strongest swimmers.  And although they look pretty lazy here, they are pretty agile on land.

The tail of the Snow Leopard is so long, that it can wrap it around itself like a muffler.

Going on a picnic?  The African penguin lives on the rocky coastline and islands of southwest Africa.

A father was approached by his small son who told him proudly, “I know what the Bible means!”  His father smiled and asked, “What do you mean, you 'know' what the Bible means?” The son replied, “I do know!” Said the father, “Okay, what does the Bible mean?” The young boy replied excitedly, “It stands for 'Basic Information Before Leaving Earth.'”
There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible to her brother in  another part of the country. “Is there anything breakable in here?” asked the postal clerk.  “Only the Ten Commandments,” answered the lady.
