Smart Bear Adventures - Interactive Fun
Smart-Bear Adventures is a series of CD-ROMs that teaches kids about the life of black bears, by following the travels of Jeanie Whistler, a bear, who has just given birth to two cubs, Willy and Wishbone. The interactive Smart-Bear Adventures follows Jeanie as she teaches her new cubs about finding food, preparing for hibernation and everything else a bear needs to learn to survive in the wild. Each Smart-Bear Adventure tells about a bear's habitat, enemies and life-cycle while teaching kids about co-operation, biodiversity and the animal kingdom.

Smart Bear Adventures - Fun Facts
- A bear cub will stay in their den with their mother for up to five months after being born.
- Before hibernation, a bear will eat pebbles, dirt, wood chips and cones from trees. This combination of food can't be digested so it forms a plug in the bear's intestine which prevents it from going poo, while it's hibernating.
- The first foods a bear eats in the spring after hibernation include skunk cabbage, grass, clover and pussy willows (Tasty!)
