You've asked two questions here. 12 over 3 is 4.

If three hot dogs out of 12 have ketchup than 1/4 of the hot dogs have ketchup.

How long do bears hibernate for

Response from Sean Farley, Research Biologist and Bear Specialist, ADF&G

Question from A. Chapman, Anchorage

Q) Do bears really sleep all winter? Do they need snow to build a den? Also, how is their behavior affected when it\'s a warmer than usual winter?

A) Bears hibernate during winter, but aren\'t sleeping the whole time. Hibernation for bears simply means they don\'t need to eat or drink, and rarely urinate or defecate (or not at all). There is strong evolutionary pressure for bears to stay in their dens during winter, if there is little or no food available. But bears will leave their dens on occasion, particularly when their den gets flooded or is badly damaged.

Weather does play a role. In the colder, northern parts of Alaska, bears hibernate about 7 months of the year. Bears in the warmer, coastal regions of the state hibernate for 2-5 months, with the longer hibernation time for bears raising newborn cubs.

Bears have developed unique adaptive strategies in order to survive for so long without food and water. They lower their body temperature 8-12 degrees, and they break down fat stores for energy. Some protein is used as well, but bears largely conserve their muscle mass and thus do not become appreciably weaker during hibernation.

Bears do wake up, however, and move around inside the den. It\'s kind of like your dog sleeping. Bears will go through a lot of posture changes where they wake periodically to shift around. It is thought this helps prevent pressure sores from developing. Bears also shift positions to better conserve heat.

If food is present a bear does not have to hibernate, unless it is pregnant or winter conditions are severe enough (such as found in Alaska). Cubs are born about two months into hibernation but aren\'t able to walk or feed on their own until they are about six months old. The den is a safe environment for the cubs as they grow. Bear cubs are classified as altricial young rather than precocial, which means they need considerable parental care before they are able to leave the den.


Farley records information on an immobilized bear. The bear was later released unharmed.

Not all bears hibernate, but in Alaska, most bears do, including the males. Our Alaskan brown/grizzly bears and black bears den more consistently than polar bears. It is not uncommon for male polar bears and polar bears that are not pregnant or with young to remain active through periods of low food availability.

Bears in zoos will not hibernate if food is available, though they will slow down and sleep more than usual. Some zoo bears are fed year round, and do not hibernate. Since they do not undergo a winter weight loss like wild bears, some zoo bears can get very overweight, which is very unhealthy. Fortunately more zoos are allowing their bears hibernate during winter. Though it makes the animals unavailable for viewing, it helps the bears stay leaner and healthier.

Bears do not need snow to make a den. In fact, some bears may not dig a den at all. In one famous Pennsylvania bear study the researcher found bears denning in road culverts, underneath home porches or simply curled up on a nest of leaves. But if the weather is unpleasant bears will make a shelter by digging, crawling into the root structure of overturned trees, or using rock caves. In Alaska and elsewhere that might have large cottonwood trees that have hollow centers, black bears love to crawl up the outside of the tree, then back down into the hollow center. If the bear is denning in dirt or a cave, snow is not required but it does help form an insulating layer.

If I don't heat or cool down my dog house with an air conditioning unit, is it dangerous for my dog?

Obviously it depends how extreme the temperatures are where you live, but in general when dogs seriously overheat, they are at risk of a stroke and when they get dangerously cold, they are at risk of hypothermia and frostbite.

I bought a Parmak Solar Pak 6. I wanted to use it

when you touch the wire, you are probably wearing shoes, which ground you,
touching it barefoot or kneeling on bare knees should provide a bit more jolt.
take your multi-meter, shove one probe in the ground and touch the wire with the other and you should get a nice reading

I recently changed from Preface to ID Works for printing my cards. At the same time I installed the Datacard printer driver ver 4.0 from CD. I have a SP 35 with and optional mag stripe kit installed. Now I...

Most likely your Mag-stripe info is missing from the card project in IDworks.
If you imported your projects from preface, its likly the box to include mag-stripe config was not transfer d.
enter idworks designer and click VIEW then field connections, there should be some info tied you mag-stripe field 1,2, or 3 of not there is the problem.

Next check printer plug ins in IDworks admin to make sure the mag-stripe plugin is installed. Also i would check Download section make sure you have newest and correct driver for your OS
if none of this works, uninstall everything (exporting projects) and reinstall.

Mag-strpe encoders can become defective, the encoder may need to be replaced.

My tent is unsafe, I have no idea how to make completely safe. I like to go camping in the northern woods, bears like to sniff and bump my tent.

Are you keeping food inside the tent?
Bears usually will not come near humans unless there is food smell coming from within the tent.
I also camp in the north woods and generally its the coyotes that are daring enough to come into a campsite. Also they use coon dogs for hunting bear which falls in public camp season and they roam about to track bear. My personnal best defense is to keep my chainsaw just inside the door as being a camp host I find myself being alone in site untill my guests arrive. The chain saw noise is a good defense to scare off anything because its very loud .And yes Ive actually had to run it one night in Particular when my site was surrounded by a pack of coyotes and they were right outside. KEEP ALL FOOD AWAY FROM TENT AT ALL TIMES. Raccoons also are very daring and will come on site even when your there if they smell food and are smart enough to open water jugs with their paws the trick to keep them out of your food is to put the coolers under the bench part of the picnic tables so the lids cant be opened.Im a very ex. camper and can give tips all day long
