[APD] Polar Bears are turning green

"SINGAPORE (AP) -- It's a wee bit early for St. Patrick's Day, but Singapore
Zoo's two polar bears have turned green.

The usually white coats of Sheba and her 13-year-old son, Inuka, turned
green a few weeks ago from algae growing in their hollow hair shafts, said
Vincent Tan, a spokesman for the zoo. "

Interesting article that relates because they use hydrogen peroxide to
bleach/kill the algae.  Earlier issues w/ green bears were cured with salt
water treatments.
