Polar Bear Training: Practice Jump

I guess I would compare Wally’s hesitation with cliff jumping. If you’ve ever jumped from a cliff into the water, you may know the feeling. When you’re up above the water 40 feet or more, something in your brain tells you that it’s not a good idea to jump and you have to fight that reasonable instinct and force yourself off the edge as if you were purposely smashing your thumb with a hammer.

But man it’s fun.

Triplet Polar Cubs

History is made with the first set of polar bear triplets born in a zoo. Polar bears, just like adelie penguins, are normally born in sets of twins. Triplets do occur on rare occasion with polar bears in the wild, but in those cases often the third one doesn’t make it due to competition with the other cubs. Polar bear cubs in zoo’s have a limited success rate, but all three of these cubs are expected to see adulthood. Here’s the article (and a photo!) at National Geographic.

MySpace & LiveJournal

I’m in your extended network! Add me to MySpace if you like. Also I will be posting any other projects I have going at my new LiveJournal.

Have A Great Weekend

Unfortunately I’ll be working all weekend finishing up a project. After that I should have more time to get a bunch of new wallpapers created and just time with the comic in general. Working weekends is always made easier by watching this great parody of Workin for the Weekend. See you Monday!

    yeah, jumping off a cliff looks scary, I’ve never done it, but want to sometime. I’ve seen it on tv and ppl who do it dont want to but when they do it they love it. so yeah, I kinda know what Wallys going through. lol 😀

  • Antarticus

    I want to jump off a cliff, but we dont have cliffs in florida, just big trees, which i’m sure isnt nearly as much fun :-(

  • crystal

  • Alexander

    I’ve gone everywhere, I even had a chance to live and be a Military Parashutist for the Bulgarian army for 3 months at one time, it was fun and we are one of the elitest prashute teams in europe :)

  • Lil

    Lol….great comic, Tyler.

  • Brady

    So if polar bears are born in sets of twins, does that mean we will see Wally’s evil twin brother (or sister) appearing in the comic in the next little while 😀

  • Kevin

    I’m totally the opposite – whenever I go somewhere there are cliffs and lookouts, it’s hard for me to srop myself from climbing up onto the fence.

  • Sev

    I’d just like to point out that, once again, Wally is naked.

    Is Tyler expressing his artistic vision, or just trying to bump up ratings?

  • Tyler Martin

    Heh, please don’t start circulating naked Wally pics around the net. Thanks. 😉

  • SuperVegito

    I Did’nt Do Nuthin!! Ya Here Me _> o_o


  • her

    Wally’s twin – ha!

  • Tyler Martin

    It could be assumed that both Wally and Osbourne have/had a twin, since both species are commonly born/hatched in pairs. I’m sure I’ll address it in a story sometime, might be in a separate longer format version of the comic and not here in the strip.

  • Antarticus (or Michael)

    that would be ineresting… maybe wally was sent to antartica by his evil twin!

  • Sev

    Wally doesn’t have an evil twin– he has a smart twin!

  • Tyler Martin


    Monday’s comic will be online a bit later in the day. Apologies, I hate not having a fresh new comic to start the week off with. More explanation at my blog:

    Also to hold you over here’s some Wally & Osbourne doodles…
