A.O.T.D. (Animal of the Day) Polar Bear

In conjunction with the new season of LOST premiering, I figured it be appropriate to have a polar bear for animal of the day (you have to see the show to get it). Now, as many folks know darker colors absorb in more sunlight and lighter colors reflect sunlight. It's why they say don't wear dark colors on a warm day because those clothes you wear combined with all that sunlight hitting them just act like a greenhouse heating your body. An interesting note about polar bears is obviously they live in some of the coldest areas on Earth, and though their fur is white, their skin is black, which absorbs more sunlight keeping them warmer.
