Green Polar Bears in Japan

There is nothing wrong with your screen. That’s a green polar bear. No, we didn’t photoshop the picture either.

Green-colored polar bears are drawing questions from puzzled visitors at a Japanese zoo. Three normally white polar bears at Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens in central Japan changed their color in July after swimming in a pond with an overgrowth of algae. Curious zoo visitors were concerned about whether the bears are sick or carrying mold. The bears are expected to return to their natural color when the algae growth subsides in November.
