Eco Speak: Grolar Bear

grolar bear [groh·ler] [ber] n. A half-grizzly, half-polar bear hybrid recently discovered in Canada. Scientists predict that if global warming continues to push grizzlies north while also melting polar bears’ icy habitat, the two species could mate and reproduce more often.

Sample usage:
“Hey, Napoleon, what are you drawing?” “A grolar bear. It’s pretty much my favorite animal. It’s like a grizzly and a polar bear mixed, bred because of climate change.”
