    BEAR VS SHARK
    in the orange corner we have Bear, in the blue corner we have Shark.

    Ok guys have your say for my uni assignment. Im taking names and kickin ass...well actually just taking polls, but it sounded cooler the first way i described it.
    Anyways what i need from you guys is to tell me what you think about this fight, get real in depth too. I'm making a hpyertext essay on this question so when I'm done ill share the site address with all of you
    possible variables i have thought of so far;
    -what species of bear/shark
    -what environment is this taking place

    etc.

    HAVE YOUR SAY, ABOUT THE FIGHT OF THE CENTURY!!!

    lets get ready to ruuuuummmblllle!

    See that hole in your wall?
    I chose bear, thought of a reason, got distracted by the tv, then forgot the reason.

    Oh yea. I don't like seafood.


    Realistically though, I would say the shark. This is assuming the two are actually fighting, then the two would both be in the water, where the shark is going to have the advantage.

    Hmm... I'd ahve to call this one a draw.
    See, it's entirely unlikely that a bear and a shark would even cross paths in the first place, but for arguement's sake - we'll pretend they do.

    Quite simply, the fight would be won based on terrain. A bear could school a shark if they were on land, a shark could school a bear if they were in water. It's that simple.

    Perhaps you should change the question of the poll to "Land vs. Water", because that's really what the situation is... How's a shark gunna walk around on land to fight a bear, or a bear swim around to fight the shark?

    All realism aside, I vote bears.
    They're better at cross-terrain, they can swim, climb, walk, etc.
    Sharks can only swim. [​IMG]

    I'd say, it dependes on the environment. On water, shark would win, no chance. On land, the bear would just need to wait for the shark to die. Simple.

    You've obviously never played Pokemon before, where you can use water type fish Pokemon to fight land based Pokemon... in the desert. Yet no one ever complains about using Kingdra on dry land. And winning. Instead of just flapping around helplessly gasping for air, until the other Pokemon eats it.


    Just saying.

    And what if the Terrain is a mix of both?

    A room with 1m high water. I'd say the bear because he's used to attack Fishes.

    or a giant eagle who'd get both, one with each claw.

    there terrain is shallow water, deep enough for the shark to swim and shallow enough to not effect the bears movement greatly.

    The species are;

    Kodiak Bear (big version of a grizzly)
    Great White Shark.

    just for a heads up, the shark is more than 2 times the size of the bear.
    Ive finished more essay website, should be uploaded soon on the net, ive even got little banners to put in your GBAtemp sigs, for pro bear and pro shark votes.

    eg.
