10 WAYS YOUR LIFE WOULD BE WAY BETTER IF YOU WERE A BEAR

Let’s face it: you’re life would be way better if you were a bear.

10.) YOU WOULD GIVE WAY BETTER HUGS

This bear wants to give you a hug. Then, probably eat you, but mostly just hugs.

9.) BEAR BABIES ARE WAY CUTER THAN HUMAN BABIES

Case closed.

8.) YOU COULD FIGHT WOLVES JUST FOR FUN-ZIES.

You know what would happen if you tried to fight a wolf? You would die. But if you were a bear you could fight all the wolves. That would be pretty sweet.

7.) YOUR CHILDREN WOULD ACTUALLY LISTEN TO YOU

Have you ever seen a bear cub misbehaving in public? No? That’s because bear cubs are awesome.

6.) YOU COULD HIBERNATE*

I once took a 5 hour nap, and it was basically the best experience of my life. Bears nap for up to 7 1/2 months. Just imaging how happy they are.

5.) YOU STILL WOULDN’T BE RELATED TO THE KOALA

Koala’s are terrible. Luckily, koala’s aren’t actually bears so you still wont have to hang out with them at family reunions.

4.) LITERALLY NO ONE WOULD EVER MESS WITH YOU. 

The complete list of things no one in the history of ever has said: “Hey, let’s fight that bear.” That is the end of the list.

3.) YOU COULD EAT FISH ALL THE TIME

2.) YOU COULD DO THIS TO PEOPLE YOU DON’T LIKE.

Okay, you would first have to convince them to get into the cage of doom, BUT IF YOU COULD, this would be pretty amazing.

1.) YOU COULD LIVE A LIFE OF AMAZING PUNS


*whether “hibernate” is the right word or not for what bears do in the winter is actually super controversial. If you want to know more fancy science stuff about this, click HERE.
