As Mariner posted in another thread, Frontier added aircraft #944 to its fleet this week. Frontier's advertising is asking employees to name the polar bear mother and her 1½-year-old cub on the tail. Sticky Grey (Frontier's advertising agency) will select the name and possibly use it to create characters for upcoming commercials and other advertising materials.
Frontier did not have to pick the names of these two cubs. Klondike and Snow were born in 1994 at the Denver zoo. They are my favorite, and are currently gracing the front of Frontier's ticket jackets.
Don't mean to get nit-picky, but glacier bears are black bears with a bluish grey coat and live in southeast Alaska, northeast BC, and the southwest Yukon. This coloration developed during the last ice age when the glacier bear ancestors were isolated around the glaciers. The color is becoming more rare as the glacier bear population is becoming more spread out and is breeding with other, more dominant colors of black bears.
Can you tell I worked in an Alaska museum for three years?
Anyways, back to the topic, I always think polar bears should be named Bobo or Binky (Anchoragites should get that last name).

Quoting N600RR (Reply 9): I didn't think that there were ANY bears in Antarctica
I stand corrected. I did find something which stated PB do not live in the southern hemisphere. They are indigenous to the arctic. My bad. I seem to recall reading a Readers Digest or National Geographic article, several years ago which lead me to believe there was a PB problem near McMurdo Station Antarctica. I guess I got my critters mixed up. Scratch Anarctica.
Man can be taken from Alaska. Alaska can never be taken from the man.

This may be sensitive: It hurts me to watch them club baby seals. They are very innocent creatures. Can F9 have a baby seal on one of their tails and "protest" the slaughter of baby seals? Robert NWDC10
They aint no blak bears ! They white - so they gotta be Archie and Edith!

Where the h*ll did you get seals from ? They're bears, sweetie.
F9 has a unique tail for each aircraft in its fleet, including the CRJ-700s flown by QX as part of a codeshare. The original 732 and 733 aircraft had two animals per tail (one on each side) to help make the airline look a little bigger than it was. However, all these aircraft have since been retired from F9's fleet. The A-319 and A-318s all have the same animal on their tails and winglets.
