My pet African dwarf frogs learned how to signal me for food when they're hungry by sitting at a certain part of their tank and staring at me until I feed them. I thought that level of intelligence was rather surprising given that I was under the impression that amphibians are one of the earliest and least evolved forms of life there is, driven purely by instinct.

You must have confused Amphibians with Antiochians. People confuse us all the time. Smiley

Also, Maria, I don't have Facebook so I can't view the video you posted.

Ah, so sorry.

It was a video of a woman waving good bye to a friendly brown bear. The bear waved back.

I think this is a video showing the same bear, but he is not waving back.

It looks Pavlovian...they learned that the act of waving will get them the bread it seems...those are some huge bears...they seem a bit obese

Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Yes, bread will do that.

I am amazed that they allow guests to feed junk food to these gentle beasts.

I like bears. As bad as their reputation is for being bloodthirsty man-eaters, bears are actually quite peaceful, docile creatures that are sheepish around humans. Most attacks occur because they were provoked or the bear had cubs. I remember fishing up North by the Cali-Oregon border with my grandfather during Summer and the black bears would hang out by the river near us. It was a pleasant, peaceful feeling.
